A keeper
26 October 2003 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I've watched "Drinking Crude" three times since it was released back in 1997 and it consistently entertains. A curious tale of a drifting, spoiled, middle class rural Irish youth just out of Leaving Cert and his working relationship with an arrogant Scottish thirtysomething. People have remarked on Eva Birthistle's performance but the real sensuality in this film belongs to Heather Craney's Julie - who has two very brief scenes - barely lasting 60 seconds between them. She appears early in the film when Al brings Paul back to his brother's home - and lights up the screen with her smouldering voluptuousness.

Elsewhere Colin (Colm?) Farrell makes an appearance as the irritating Click.

A keeper. 7/10
