The dramatic shifts in tone become even more pronounced with the second film's slow-tempo opening chapter about an old man on the lam. In 'The Tears of the Judge', a public trial becomes a mockery, with the testimony implicating everyone in attendance. The Desolate One ends on an exhilarating note, with a supremely entertaining story about a dog named Dixie who's passed between owners, familiarising us with the inhabitants of a working-class apartment building.
