The performances of Newmark and Scanlan apart (the appalling shortcomings of the film not being their fault at all), this was absolutely dire. A truly revolting film without any merit at all (oh, the music was quite nicely done). But ... I could waste an awful lot of time analysing it, but I won't bother. It was the very opposite of entertaining (I had to force myself to stick with it and not walk out, in the hopes that it might develop some kind of redeeming dramatic resolution.) Nor was it intellectually stimulating or thought-provoking. Incredibly, it didn't really have a social message either, it was all in a kind of puerile vacuum. I felt I'd gone back 50 years to film school, though I don't think I ever saw a film as bad at this in the three years I was at film school. I can't really think of any film in my whole life that I've enjoyed less. 92 minutes of sewage that I'm now trying to erase from my memory like a very bad dream.
