More subtle dialogue than it might seem.......
24 July 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film has already had some good, accurate and concise reviews. It is well written, well acted and well filmed. The research that has gone into it seems considerable, and then used in an intelligent way to produce a piece of drama, rather than a dull documentary. Whilst some of VG's works are dismissed in what appears to be a clichéd manner, ("childish"), this is a point that has to be made.

The film also reminds us of just how much work VG produced in such a short space of time - indeed, what we now we regard as some of his finest.

I'd suggest that some of the films finest moments pass almost without us realising the true meaning of the very carefully chosen dialogue.

In particular the line "It was you - you made me do it" after a scene of destruction will resonate with anyone who has ever worked with anyone with mental health problems, and contains enough different meanings to write a book about.

This work is a fine attempt to explain the unexplainable, whilst at the same time holding it's audience.
