    I really liked this film. I thought it was a decent low budget portrait of one man's life and not at all like the sensational description of it. My biggest problem is that Jeff is not subtitled. It is clear that the people around him can understand him, including the film-maker, so why not help us the audience out. I want to know what Jeff is saying, but because I'm not in the room to question his interpreters every time there is a bit I can't understand, I miss too much. Also quite important is that I entered this film without any knowledge of what Down's syndrome is, and ended it with that same ignorance. I did gleam that Jeff still mostly enjoys the same things any man his age without Down's would also enjoy and that his surrounding friends and family believe him to be cleverer and more capable than his affliction would state he is. A decent little film and quite short, but again my biggest regret is the lack of integrated subtitles which could have enhanced this film so much.

    Man with Down's Syndrome in 'liking girls & beer and sometimes being a dick' shocker. Simple and thoughtful documentary which doesn't patronise either the audience or the subject. (Lots of DVD extras I'm yet to check out, but it's worth getting in the Troma 2-pack with Giuseppe Andrews' "Trailer Town")
