Movie Info

Filmmaker Paul Fraser enjoyed an unusual collaboration with the popular British rock band Arctic Monkeys for this gritty short drama. Adapted from the group's song "When The Sun Goes Down", Scummy Man offers a glimpse into one evening in the life of Nina (Lauren Socha), a teenage prostitute hooked on drugs. One of Nina's regular customers is George (Stephen Graham), who pays well but abuses Nina and seems to enjoy keeping her in a dangerous and degrading life style. Nina has a chance meeting with a magician who offers her a straight job as the assistant in his stage act, but sinister George finds a way to sabotage her good fortune. Scummy Man was shot by Fraser in tandem with the Arctic Monkeys' music video for "When The Sun Goes Down", and the film was released on a collection of music videos from the band which won the "Best Music DVD of 2006" awards at the NME Music Awards.

½

Great performances in a Arctic Moneys-inspired short. Moral: being a prostitute attacts people with a negative personality.
