You know, I actually just watched Silk again, this time on DVD....
It was much better on the second viewing. Though I still wouldn't call the film good, it was not nearly as bad. A bit more effective, nice to look at...Keira's scenes were more interesting. The film put me in a sulky mood, but in a not-entirely-bad sort of way.
I upgrade my ranking of Silk from one star to two stars.
