Plot – Spoilers:
A crazy mother and daughter live in a wealthy villa that they share with a bandaged/mummified corpse. The corpse seems to be the remains of Dad. He doesn’t have much to do here, though he’s probably the source of all their craziness.
Singapore Sling begins with a longheld family tradition from Dad’s time – a murdered servant being buried in the garden. Mother and daughter aren’t the best of mates, but they chug along for want of better accomplices to their craziness that includes bizarre roleplays.
Into their world arrives a wasted detective who’s desperately in love with Laura, a woman believed to be dead, and who was once a secretary to the family.
By the end of Singapore Sling, it gets even more unclear who is who. Was the daughter actually Laura damaged into roleplaying a daughter. Was the mother really the mother or just a passing performer in the daughter’s fantasy game.
Michele Valley who plays mother here, also played the mother in Dogooth.
AWESOME CHOICE ADMINS, LOVED IT!! A most perfect fit for ur site as well?
So, what’s your favorite movie genre, transgressive expressionist noirploitation maybe? Lol. Let’s see, we have a film thats foreign B&W, noir, and has constant breaking of the 4th wall. That’s a holy trinity for me right there! How refreshing, can’t believe I’ve never heard of this film before, it made my night honestly.
Beautifully shot, acted, framed, scored… this one literally checked damn near all the boxes, including the kink ones, and was a bit erotic at that. I found some parts to be quite humorous as well, and imo the daughter stole the show in terms of acting. They took taboo trashy subject matter and made it higher art somewhat, so in that aspect only, it kinda reminded me of Salo. When I saw this was Greek I figured it’d b a piece of trash akin to the Greek film Island of Death. Glad I was wrong.
I’m definitely gonna have to add this one to my collection. 10/10, the standing ovation!! Thanks again effedup;)
my god what for a crazy, weird… etc. movie and this comes from greece…unbelievable!!!
great stuff, merci.
I’m really glad and surprised my 2nd recommendation, again for a greek film, got through and a lot of people here liked it!!!
Cheers y’ all and keep it up!
WOW, insane, I loved it, so unusual
Wow.. what can I say… Totally enjoyed that…. Suspense.. sexyness… Drama.. pathos… Vomit… Lavishly shot and scored…. A hit in every sense .. didn’t even dip in the middle. Slightly bizarre and every bit a s good as any film on this truly wonderful site.
If asked, I’ll deny I ever watched this film…. twice! : )
What a train wreck that keeps your interest from beginning to end. Thought it was a great piece of film making. Not for everyone but wow…simply wow!
Great movie, funny and disturbing which is always a good blend. I really liked it, especially Michele valley playing in it.
I watched this movie with my love yesterday. I have to admit we didn’t expect it to be so fuuucked up, but it turned out to be the most disturbing thing ever. amazing. my girl even stopped watching for 5 minutes, which means it’s a good movie. Cant wait for laddy gaga to do more stuff like this.
The daughter can’t act ‘crazy’ well.. too forced.. Comes off as corny so many times.
man ngl, this was SO entertaining for no reason. my mind processed absolutely none of what was happening but there’s just something in the humor of it that makes you wanna stay and keep watching
could use more shit. 0/10. would not fucking watch again. seriously, i was expecting some juicy turds to be dropped… shit
they hated ilovetoshit because he spoke the truth (not enough shit in the movie)
I’ve watched this movie over 100 times now probably. Good for you all to masturbate to probably, but this movie’s probably to deep for you to get. And it has classical music in it so what’s that tell you. Sick of all this pretentious “art” and pretentious edgelords who call movies “films” and on here pretending to be me. You all need to get some lifes just sayin – Cheers Zed
What a beautiful masterpiece.
now one of my favorites. thanks, EUM
A fantastic film. Mixes in a number of genres and the cinematography is brilliant. Bizarre, erotic, surreal and much more and all elements merge perfectly imo. I have seen this film named on many peoples extreme/effed up lists and now I know why. Thank you Admin for uploading this film so I finally got to see it. An absolute gem of a movie and one I will definitely be purchasing. Unique, and for me, one of the rare films I rate 5/5.
Didnt know whether to laugh or cringe, one of the most bizarre films I have seen, it was too much of a headfuck for me, especially the ending. But, on the other hand, if thats what greek chicks are like, I better find one, they are obviously very kinky. The mother was hotter than the daughter, imo.
