Wierd but worth a view
19 January 2003 | by (Sutton Coldfield, England) – See all my reviews

Channel 4 ran endless teaser trailers for this unique and compelling programme. Directed by Dennis Lawson (famous for his role as tie-fighter 'Wedge' in all three original STAR WARS MOVIES) this short film follows Ewan McGregor's life changing experiences and discent into almost madness.

This begins to esculate with the discovery of his Grandfathers old diaries. These are full of unusual tales and resolutions, which Ewan McGregor is asked to edit for his late Grandfather from beyond the grave.

Before long McGregor gets so wrapped up in the diaries that he begins to ignore and resent his girlfriend.

Half-way in to the story, McGregor reads of how his Grandfather created a devise which can send a human being into another dimension or something similar (either i missed something or its left for you decide).

It's impossible to say anymore without spoiling it for those who haven't seen it.

I didn't go to any special effort to watch this film, but i am very glad that (by chance) i did.

It was shot in a unique style and grabbed my attention right till the end.

I often judge how good a film is by how much i think or talk about it afterwards, with this in mind i must of really enjoyed it!

Really worth a viewing if you get the chance, just to have a chat about in the pub, if nothing else...
