Oh man, This has to be seen to be (almost) believed!
18 September 1998 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

An indictment on everything wrong with the thatcherite thinking of the day, this film explores the deepest recesses of the mind - probing into areas previously thought taboo by mainstream cinema.

Hilarious & sad - Ugly & Bad.

You have go to see this!

(even if just for the Motorhead soundtrack)
