Imagine the devil isn't so bad after all. He is just like you and me. Well, not quite like you and me, but perhaps a little misunderstood. He is sick of the bad press he gets. He wants a makeover, a re-branding. He wants to be cool. And who better to help him than one of the top PR executives in the industry. The only problem is he's not dead, yet. Welcome to the weird and mysterious world of Mr Firecul. A world where rules can be broken, deals can be struck and the dead can live on. But above all, where image is everything. Written by
I really do have to worry about Jade Carmen . This is the second short I saw from Jade today , the other being PIGGY BANK and both seem to have an unhealthy appetite for crime
MR FIRECUL ( Is that an anagram for Lucifer ? ) starts with a young man called Jason throwing a brick through a car window in a very well directed sequence and I have to say that I have no complaints about the technical aspects of the directing since the cinematography and editing are at the very worst more than adequate . However as the story progresses it becomes obvious that the actor Michael Brown who plays Jason is awful in the role . I won't just blame the actor since much of the dialogue is unnatural with lines like " I was scared this morning but not as half as I'm scared now " but even so it's a not a very good performance while casting a once famous French footballer , namely David Ginola , seems like a bad idea
As it stands MR FIRECUL is a good example of no matter how talented a director is at technical aspects if you make bad casting decisions it can ruin a screen story
