Movie Info

DUBLIN OLDSCHOOL tells the story of Jason, a wannabe DJ, on a drug-fuelled trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one session to another. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, and drug busts he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel. Daniel, an educated heroin addict, is living on the streets. The brothers haven't seen or spoken to each other in years but over a lost weekend they reconnect and reminisce over raves, tunes and their troubled past. Two brothers living very different lives might have more in common than they think.


Critic Reviews for Dublin Oldschool

  • Superficially glancing at the serious implications of drug use and addiction without deigning to engage, it's little more than an empty high followed by a numb comedown.

  • It's fun and heavy; fast and slow; a comedy and a commentary - but mostly, this is something best experienced on a big screen.

  • Wordy and worthy, it makes a sweet cinematic monument to the contemporary Dublin rave scene, while reveling in the seductive energy of a good party.

  • The endeavour is undeniable. The Trainspotting/Human Traffic moxie, admirable. You do wonder, though, if Dublin Oldschool bit off more than it could chew.

  • Too many people speak (or think) in the same voice.

    Jul 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Tynan's film is laden down with aimless chatter, and its plot meanders drearily towards a country rave that seems curiously old-fashioned, and feels like a piece of Dublin's past, not its present.
