  • Summary: A small Greek town is the setting for a delirious black comedy combining early Almodovar with "Dynasty" to achieve a twisted tale of dubious morality, infidelity, and murder. (Picture This! Entertainment)

    At the center of the movie, Tsimitselis makes for a disappointing blank, a pretty poster boy who leaves a long trail of emotional wreckage in his wake.
  2. It does have the feel of farce at times, but much of the time it just seems determined to shock.
  3. 40
    Blackmail Boy reaches for tragedy but settles for soap opera.
  4. 38
    Black comedy requires perfect pitch: Pedro Almodovar has it and cowriters/directors Michalis Reppas and Thanasis Papathanasiou don't, at least by the evidence of this film.
  5. 30
    It's a mean-spirited exercise in stilted outrageousness.
  6. 25
    The Greeks have a word for Blackmail Boy: boring.
  7. Curiously, Blackmail Boy's alternate title is "Oxygen"--and by film's end, you'll be gasping for it.
