The movie may seem to focus  on  a gay romance but it has strong messages that it aims to convey; first, on the issue of raping not only women but men as well and second, on the perennial issue of drug use and addiction.  These were seen as major factors contributing to Kafka's gradual degradation and decay. I was thinking, maybe the film could have ended on a positive mode, with Kafka given the necessary help such as rehab.  But then again, this is somehow typical of Director Scud's personal directorial and writing style which is known for its cynicism and with which his characters embraces acceptance of their life choices.  I find this film extraordinarily creative,  disturbingly real and with a its own sense of appeal.  Worth checking out!
