Trivia

The film was shot in 18 days on a budget of 18,000. According to Connolly "We put together a compact crew - first-timers like ourselves - and we shot the film in eighteen days, mostly within a three mile radius of O'Connell Bridge. We tried to follow some basic guidelines we had culled together from reading and hearing about low-budget film-making - namely, you write a script with a couple of characters in one location; you do an inventory of availability; you make it fit your budget; you rehearse well, talk everything through; you spend the money on getting the best gear you can afford; you keep the shoot tight - three weeks maximum; you use locations that are free; you keep to a twelve-hour day, six day week; you shoot a ratio of 6/1 and you keep away from people who say it can't be done."

Looked like a soap opera to me
21 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

`FLiCK' reminds me a lot of a soap opera. Slow, predictable and for the most part boring. The film is the story for two small time drug dealers in Dublin who are attempting to make the big score. Of course, as they do so, they run a foul of the police, and a local gang of `big' time drug dealers. Along with that, the usual relationship problems, drug addiction and violence one expects from a movie like this unfold in all the usual ways. This film lacks even the most rudimentary elements of intrigue or originality. The plot also has several holes in it. Character appears with little explanation as to who are or what relevance they have to the story line. Then, as suddenly as they appear; they're gone.

The movie does have one high point. David Murray plays the lead role as `Jack Flinter', and does a good job. He was able to bring a sense of believability to the role with his tough but sensitive style. It would be interesting to see what he might do with a well written script and a good role in a big mainstream movie. I hope such a role comes his way in the near future, as I'll bet he'll give a great performance.
