This could be happen my neighborhood
8 September 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I saw today The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael at Helsinki International Film Festivals press preview. Movie ended around three o'clock afternoon. I was almost hit by car in afternoon rush hour when walk back to home.

This movie is shocking. It really is - forget art house violence or splatter movies. Movie is taken place in small town in England, but it could be anywhere. Its character reminds me early years of 90's in Helsinki, Finland, because I was then young and some people which I knew were losing their minds with drugs. And that what this movie is all about. Losing touch with reality, moral and most of all respect of life with in yourself and others. And what happens then. If you can watch whole movie then you know. If you can't don't blame yourself it was hard for me and I have done lot of work with human rights issues and I have saw and hear things that are horrible. But still young British director Thomas Clay has made this fiction as shocking as it would be documentary. And you leave from theater with very uneasy feeling - this could be happen my neighborhood. I'm still in shock.
