It is a film based on some true events. It is not a movie in typical sense, as there is no straight narrative. It is neither a typical tale of a tortured woman. It is a tale much of which remains untold. The protagonist is a sex-slave. It throws light on some dark sides of human lives. It is a study of darker sides of characters of a boss, a caretaker, a customer and a victim. They are individuals representing universal greed, lust, sadism, voyeurism and despondence.
It is not a film, but a document of harshest reality, where a woman becomes instrument for man’s sadistic pleasure. In the process the victim becomes a mere machine meant for serving to man’s lust. Why is it titled KUJO? How come an earthen-pitcher becomes so important in the movie. One needs to wait till end to know why is titled so.
