Storyline

Soon after leaving prison, EDDIE has his eye cut out by a loan shark chasing an old debt. Eddie's other eye will only be spared upon repayment. Desperate for cash, Eddie phones LINDA, a childhood sweetheart. She lives in Saxon - a nightmare sprawl of boarded-up and crumbling flats run by a corrupt council. But Linda is very wealthy. Her husband won a million pounds on a TV quiz show. She draws Eddie back to Saxon: the place where he grew up; the place where his mother works as a prostitute; the place where he murdered a bailiff. When Eddie arrives, Linda offers him a reward to find her missing husband whom she fears dead. Eddie turns amateur investigator and so embarks on a comically gruesome journey through a surreal underworld. Written by Greg Loftin

Original with deffo cult potential Brit flick!!!
30 August 2007 | by (Scotland, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think after watching Saxon, you will either love this film or hate it...of course I loved it...why?? It's freshness and originality (and it's damn right madness at times!) will grab other parts that the norm cannot reach.

It is so good to see British talent making an effort to create a piece of 'art' (which i believe this film will become) and show the film biz and the UK TV biz that they should be backing artistic talent and not the dross that is Big Brother or cooking shows. I make this point because it is so sad that the Director and Producer had to re-mortgage their house to make this film - a sad reflection upon the 'men in suits' methinks! The film follows 'fast eddie' returning to Saxon (a grim housing estate) (Sean Harris on excellent form) - just out of prison and on a journey of redemption and trying to make some quick cash of which he owes to a local fishmonger. If he does not pay he will loose an eye (the other was cut out by the head fishmonger) to a psycho, almost perverted, fishmonger as payment - played very scary and with force by newbie Stephen Manwaring (Molly). Also, there are ruthless bailffs (head bailiff Russell exellently played by Drew Edwards) to contend with, mad Tramps, a vengeful father, an angry young Asian lad, a mad lighter lady, his Mother who is on the game and various ex's and an excellent soundtrack. Also, sarah Matravas is great with those (in the words of Tony Soprano) "Charles Manson Lamps" (crazy eyes) - great stuff!

There are twists and turns galore and to be frank - the characters are barking - and i loved them for the shear entertainment value. There is also nice pace changes...sometimes slow but then 'bang', we get an explosion of action...this kept me on the edge of my seat.

I hope for British Film's sake that this gets a good release in 2008 and thank god this is not another Gangster film!!! Most of the cast you will not of heard of but I hope you will by the end of 2008!!! If you like David Lynch and A clockwork Orange and you want to see a Film that has Cult potential, then go a see Saxon. Barking and Bonkers but brave!!! IronDuke
