In the opening sequence, Michael Cainenote
is driving a dead body on a jeep, and theres Italian march music on the soundtrack. Right away you know youre in for something unique. Play Dirty isnt a sadistic film, but its mean. The characters have no redeeming social value, which I love. In one sequence, they pretend to be Italian soldiers to fool some Arabs; one of the Arabs spots something on them, so they take their guns and shoot all the Arabs. They dont think, they just act. They have a job to do, and theyre going to do it. The nihilism, the pragmatism its frightening.
