Storyline

Headrush is a crime comedy about two disillusioned youths, struggling through a haze of cannabis, who hope to solve all their problems by smuggling a consignement of drugs for a local gangster. It's set in the present day in Dublin, Ireland against the backdrop of the end of the Celtic Tiger: the bursting of the bubble of this economy boom that's supposed to have done wonders for us all.

'white' christmas
9 October 2003 | by (Leeds, UK) – See all my reviews

saw this 2 days ago as part of the Leeds Film Festival, introduced by director Shimmy himself.

quality little addition to a rather crowded UK (apologies - know its Irish) genre. The comedy gangster film. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and, like every new director, respect for getting it made in the first place. As the man said himself, it started one Christmas whilst watching the holiday films on offer and foolishly saying 'I could do better than that'. Nine years later we can be the judge of that.

Funny, well written, nice cameo by Huey from Fun Loving Criminals and disturbingly, realistically scuzzy.....

I wasn't the only one in the audience muttering 'stop him, stop him!' when Teabag took what seemed like an endless 'taste' of the goods. recommend anyone wants to support new talent and likes tongue in cheek, jaw grinding plot lines. Give it a go.

Big up Shimmy!
