Holy Smoke

JOURNEY TO TEMPTATION. BUT BE SURE YOU KNOW YOUR WAY BACK.

holysmokeYoung Australian Ruth Barron (Kate Winslet) has fallen under the spell of a guru in India; her parents lure her back home to be deprogrammed by an American, P.J. Waters (Harvey Keitel). Winslet is excellent as the fiercely independent cult victim, and that’s a key part in Jane Campion’s film. It’s a story about what kind of effect men and women have on each other, but its primary theme is the contentious relationship between a psychologist and his patient. Unfortunately, the movie falls apart because of Keitel‚Äôs utterly unconvincing character.

1999-U.S.-Australia. 114 min. Color. Directed by Jane Campion. Screenplay: Anna Campion, Jane Campion. Cast: Kate Winslet (Ruth Barron), Harvey Keitel (P.J. Waters), Julie Hamilton (Mum), Tim Robertson, Daniel Wyllie, Sophie Lee… Pam Grier.
