The most evil film in the world
21 May 2003 | by (Alice Springs) – See all my reviews

Pure S**t is, in short, pretty crap. However it does has its moments of hilarity, the highlight of the film being the finale at the rehab clinic. The humour of the rest of the film is quite weak, with the exception of just about the worst car-chase scene I have ever seen, which is so crap that it is surprisingly enjoyable. The bulk of Pure S**t really serves only to set the scene for the last act which, excepting the stroke of genius in the naming of the film (a rival perhaps to the entirely anonymously produced "The Best Film in the World"), is the only real reason you would watch this film. The four junkies are comprised of a dopey girl with an annoying voice whose name I cannot remember, John and his girlfriend, and Lou. The director obviously decided that Lou would be the 'complete dickhead', which sets up the film quite well. After the raid on the pharmacy John gets kidnapped by the rehab clinic and the others go to try and rescue him, but acting as a prelude to this finishing tour de force is a scene in which they go to visit one of Lou's friends who is out of mind on I presume coke or speed. He is the 'stupid bloke that runs around naked' and his girlfriend plays the 'cleaning freak' and it is only at this point that the bad acting (which I doubt is intentional) plays out its advantage and the whole point of Lou becomes apparent - he is of course the twat that plays out all the stupidity; It is not really posible to convey the screwball humour of it in writing but it revolves from this point around Dr Woolf who is the hilarious gimp in charge of the rehab programme. It is not black humour, as is suggested by other reviews - dark-ish stuff, but the morons who dubbed it the "most evil film in the world" are essentially of the same ilk that would praise the film as a masterpiece. This it is not - it would be worth seeing if it came out on video, but this seems like a gradually dying possibility.
