This Movie Doesn't Deserve To Live
15 July 2004 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

THE LIFE OF STUFF revolves around a feared gangster called Alex Sneddon who is coming back to town to settle a drugs vendetta . This sounds like an exciting though unoriginal premise . Unfortunately the long anticipated arrival of Sneddon doesn't actually take place until the movie has almost finished its running time which means we the long suffering audience have to put up with .... What ?

That's the problem with THE LIFE OF STUFF , we all know where it's heading but for the most part the story is composed of absolutely nothing that holds the audience attention . Instead of anything resembling substance or indeed a plot we have to endure ( And my god it's an endurance ) wafer thin characters dancing around , taking drugs or crawling around a cellar . It's even more uninteresting on screen than what I've described

THE LIFE OF STUFF is based on a stage play but the producers seem to have made a major miscalculation on movie making . The producers may claim that there's a ready made market for the movie since people have seen the play , but is there ? Are people who watch plays in the theatre the same people who go the cinema ? In my opinion - No . It should also be pointed out that because most of the characters speak with really thick Scottish accents this movie wouldn't manage an audience outside of Scotland , I'm from Scotland myself and for the most part I couldn't understand a bloody word most of the characters were saying though judging by the dialogue maybe I shouldn't complain too much . I also couldn't noticing despite being made seven ( 7 ) years ago and being broadcast on British network television a grand total of nineteen ( 19 ) people have given this movie a vote which justs goes to show its lack of commercial appeal and I wonder how many of the voters worked on the movie ? Probably all those who didn't award it one out of ten

I thought THE WEDDING TACKLE was the worst British film the BBC showed this year but within days it was beaten by THE LIFE OF STUFF . It's a film lacking in cinematic appeal and plotting but the worse criticism is that it's totally unentertaining and the people who funded it should never have been allowed a bank account of their own . It's those people who destroyed the British film industry and continue to destroy it by financing crap like this
