Heartwrenching
11 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A tear-jerker of the highest order, Commercial Breakdown combines a true love story with a haunting soundtrack to create an illusion of a disparaging world devoid of light and soul.

Arguably McGrath's finest work - a masterpiece of presentation. The lighting and sound contribute to an enchanting ensemble of elements which rouse the spirit and simultaneously devours the nonchalance of humanity.

It is said in hushed voices behind closed doors that the tagline to Commercial Breakdown is "ex rory, scienta" (from Rory, science). It doesn't surprise me. A programme of the highest reverence, Commercial Breakdown will have you crying out of all three of your eyes.

A cracking watch.
