I think this film is fantastic
26 March 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film very haunting, especially the songs, (which are not available on any Kinks album. The actors are brilliant, especially Tim Roth as the young punk, he takes on a very powerful role in the film. The script is good as well, it is sometimes scary, sometimes funny. Overall I think this film is fantastic.
