Don Boyd is brilliant
31 August 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Don Boyd is the only British director that has remained true to himself, everything he has done is a work of passion, everything he does he throws his heart and soul into it. Such is the case with this film, totally out there, vastly entertaining and Don does it his way, cast his own daughter, and makes a brilliant job of it. This will probably never been seen commercially but it deserves to. Don Boyd is the UK equivelant of Sam Fuller, uncompromising and edgy with his head firmly NOT up his own bottom like most Brit directors.
