Pretty When You Cry is 2001 erotic thriller directed by Jack N. Green.[1]


Detective Black (Elliott) conducts a procedural interrogation on Albert Straka (Kennedy), a quiet and unassuming man who is a suspect in the brutal and violent murder of Frank (Cavalieri), a drug and sex addict who owns a nightclub. He gets Albert to admit that he had strong feelings towards Frank's wife, Sarah (Elizabeth), but that she was into far too kinky sex for him to ever fall in love with. As the interrogation continues, it is revealed that the sordid sexual relationship among the three grew increasingly bizarre.
