Unfortunately the initially intriguing story eventually grows confusing and unconvincing as Welsford reveals some head-scratching twists in a clumsy journey through obsession, paranoia and betrayal.

Jetsam makes an interesting proposition but neither the execution or resolution exert any real grip.

August 29, 2009
To mention echoes of Notorious and The Conversation would be to flatter Simon Welsford's first feature, but his keen sense of place and atmosphere point to a career worth watching.

Jetsam remains something washed up on the beach, a confused, commonplace industrial espionage story. But there is real promise here.

It's all a bit silly. There are lots of chases, curses, kisses and the odd fancy gadget.

British director Simon Welsford's flawed movie has intriguing ideas and a great opening, but never comes together into a plausible fiction.

Jetsam's saddled with a score that's as subtle as a pneumatic drill at 6am on a Sunday morning, but there's enough here to ensure Welsford should get noticed.

A skilfully written and deftly controlled thriller that refuses to be bound by budget limitations, Jetsam marks Simon Welsford out as a potentially significant new director.

Once the film has been stripped down to a clear-cut thriller, Welsford keeps it moving smoothly. A useful calling card.

Apparently made for 3,000, Welsford's well-mounted debut delivers ambiguity in spades - perhaps too many spades.

August 29, 2009
The film overextends itself a little as twist piles upon twist and in terms of narrative it's not entirely successful, but as a masterclass in microbudget film-making this is well worth a look.

Pic can be read as a cautionary fable directed at those who put too much of themselves into their work.
