I bought it from a non-English speaking Chinese Illegal immigrant who had to make at least £50 a day or face the lash, starvation and if he really couldn't shift the stock, a fatal bludgeoning at the hands of the traffickers. My money, I understood from a complex mime, would be channelled into the purchase and distribution of heroin which is fine because I'll bank roll anything as long as it isn't drink.
Gag Factor - the biopic of comedian Tommy Cooper, is an authoritative and touching account of the tragic entertainers private life, which although he doesn't feature, nevertheless illuminates his genius via the clever and unexpected use of hardcore sex acts. Whether its a rutting couple honey glazing each others oratorical fissures or an impressionable young girl ingesting a young buck's roundal payload, the warmth and commanding presence of Cooper is always present - though sometimes temporarily obscured by bobbing breasts. Introspective and occasionally shocking, Factor's strength is undoubtedly helmer Jim Powers (A torrent of glands, the fantastic foreskin)- his emphasis on character and the enunciary power of the genital lattice is bold and unsettling. The jaw dropping climax is also cinema at its most profound and indeed, gelatinous and sets up a sequel that doesn't disappoint. Go out, wait in a pub or outdoor café and buy a copy when you have the chance. Unmissable.
