Good director, poor script
11 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

Robert Quinn shows he's got the goods but needs to exercise better judgment when deciding what scripts to go with - You don't get too many shots. Well directed but where does one draw the line? - director has to take some credit for story choices and character motivation which in this instance was non existent.

Pauper's "Shallow Grave" this. Derek Landy had the very good fortune to see what passes in most instances for a first draft make it to the screen. One can only pray "Boy Eats Girl" is better for everyone's sake. Logic is non existent and characters are all unsympathetic and unlikeable, as evidenced by audiences in all media staying away in droves and film going down like a lead balloon internationally.
