Oh deary me, what an angry review from the chap that went to the premiere of Dead Long Enough.
Worse for him, he was in the Audience which gave the film the Audience Prize at the Cardiff film festival. eeK!!
The chap very angry that such a fine writer like himself cannot raise funding for one of his own projects in Wales. Good to get it out there free himself up for his next attempt at getting a few bob to make a film, a really important serious film about something really important and serious.
He, I suspect might be one of the pseudo critics that the film is in fact satirising.
Personally, I really enjoyed the film I saw it in Ireland where I suspect people got the fact that it was taking 'the Mick' of how the Irish are portrayed in film.
Dead Long Enough to me was a complete parody of the way Ireland has been portrayed by an unintelligent British and American media, Gunmen, red heads, borders, soldiers, drink, some drugs, the oirishness of the Police while being a laugh was a satire on the way the Brits and Yanks see the Irish. Silly policemen in comic book style.
Did he not catch the whole Gunman escapade was parody. That the foreigners in love with the IRA man was ironic. By the way she was not Icelandic either. Did he not see the red haired colleen was in itself a satire on how some outsiders see Irish woman. Probably not.
No wonder the Welsh need a bit of help with their film making.
I'm glad he liked the music. I think that was Irish too. For gods sake someone in Wales give this guy a few quid to make a classic like How welsh was my valley.
