There are Two Underdogs Connected to this Brit-Indie, the Title Character and the Writer Director. Gerard Johnson made this Ultra-Low-Budget Movie for about as much as a Six Pack and a Bag of Pretzels Using a Cinema Verite Style that most Probably came from the Inherent Lack of Funds Available.
It Served Him Well as this is about as Gritty and Down to Earth as Filmmaking Gets. It is Minimalism Materialized. The Movie has a Washed Out Look from Novices having a Go at the Most Obvious of Cinema Low Lifes: The Serial Killer.
The Acting is Above Par for this Get Together of Film Geeks with an Outstanding Lead Performance that Crosses a Neo-Nazi and a Nerd. The Only Time that Character Tony Manages any Equilibrium is when He is Doing the Deed. There He is in Full Control and Manages the Kill and the Clean Up with a Precision that He might Consider Honing into a Productive and Useful Profession. But He is Obviously too Far Gone.
This is one of those Disturbing Films Void of Frills and in its Docu Style it can do Nothing but be Unsettling and Unnerving. For that it Succeeds and Fans of Street Cinema, those Movies made with Nothing More than the Enthusiasm and Energy of a Film School Project and a Will to Draw Attention to Itself with Little Help from Anyone not Involved in the Production.
Overall Worth a Watch for those Willing to Suspend Depth and Details for Visceral Visions from Aspiring Newcomers with Talent in Desperate Need of some Support.
