Escapism
7 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

This film isn't horror, its very unique bizarre drama. Its still very good drama, quite amusing in some places and uses the art of suspense and subtle

references to classic horror films to keep the viewer engaged. Charlie is in Scotland hoping to burn down the house of a celebrity who has

nicked his wife when Vincente throws himself upon his mercy in a motorway

service station. Charlie is obliged to take Vincente in his car where they do a great deal of male bonding on the road. They run out of petrol on a very

deserted patch of Scottish highland and are forced to take 'refuge' (being the operative word) in a lone manor house, miles from anywhere, where there are

some very strange characters residing. The film centralises on the characters exercising their own demons by being

surrounded and supported by other dysfunctional people who have their own

problems. The film ends with some shocking violence. To be fair, its a very

unrealistic story and quite confusing at some points but if you, as like the

characters of Charlie and Vincente are looking for some escapism, 'The Last

Great Wilderness' could be for you.
