Revenge (1995)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Janis Ian

The high points on Revenge from the former adolescent folk phenom Janis Ian are middle-aged spousal squabbles, lent added urgency by jazz/funk/ dub/samba/raga explorations and sound effects ranging from bedroom gasps to barking dogs. Unfortunately, the sparer, more downbeat ballads aren't as haunting as they try to be. B
