Not a reassuring vision, for sure, and no tourist plug for Dalston, Hackney or Haggerston, but the film's a fair calling card for Johnson's talent.

The problem is that there's no character development, no revelations and no epiphany. The film is merely nauseating.

Gerard Johnson's debut is undeniably exploitative and rather pointless, but enough red herrings get chucked into the mix to keep you interested.

Johnson and cinematographer David Higgs shoot this mundane horror in drab, flat colours, accentuating the invasive intimacy with which we're thrown into Tony's life. The entire screen has the greasy texture of accumulated filth.

No one could possibly regard Tony as without flaws. It is often rough and ready - but it is most certainly the product of a real and very promising film-maker, inhabiting a convincingly original world of its own.
