It was Harry Gregson-Williams' first feature-length film as a composer, who would later on became well-known for scoring the Shrek franchise and his frequent collaborations with Ben Affleck, and the Scott brothers (Tony & Ridley). See more »
A claustrophobic thriller set in suburbia, the film is centred on the shifting relationship between a serial killing cross dressing dentist and a writer. The killer correctly guesses the author murdered her abusing husband (who's been missing for three years) and rents a room in her house. Once installed he blackmails her into writing his biography.
I found the plot engaging, with weaving plot strands involving the police, a retired gangland thug, an ex lodger, and a very slow fingerprint computer search making a surprisingly good story. And I didn't see the twist at the end coming.
I knew the film cost roughly as much as family saloon to shoot, so expected something much more basic than 'Urban Ghost Story' - the production team's latest film. Although I felt the lack of budget showed in the limited locations and set dressing, this contributed to the tense atmosphere and quirky British feel (a bit like the 'Young poisoner's handbook' but less glitzy). Overall it's a quietly confident production which entertained me throughout. I enjoyed it more than Urban Ghost story (which for me failed to deliver a satisfying conclusion) and would recommend it.
I believe there are several versions of this film out there - the version I saw is shortly to be released in America under the title 'Interview with a serial killer'.
