Deveilishly Clever Film! Alan Moore would love this movie!
I am yet another one of the fans from the Frightfest Film Festival, saw Puritan on Monday, and it blew me away.
It looks like a Victorian film, dark and shadowy, and has all the elements of DC's Vertigo comics.
All those Alan Moore adaptations we have had that have hit the big screen have been truly dire, but this film, obviously not written by Moore but newcomer Hadi Hajaig, is the kind of film that has the feel of those graphic novels.
Its intricate in its design, gorgeous in its mise en scene, and devilishly clever in its final act delivery.
The cast are cool, Moran who acted in lock stock, a film i did not enjoy at all, was excellent, David Soul was sooo good as the menacing self help guru, but it is the new talent that is Georgina Rylance that steals their thunder, she is like a more beautiful Kristin Scott Thomas.
If I had any criticism it is that it didn't explain itself enough at the end, but I guess that is a good thing as we can try to mull over all the various plot details.
A great shot in the arm for the Independent British Film industry, who only seem to make moronic gangster films. It really inspired me.
