feature film.
15 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Aboslutey incredible low budget film. Starring a team of actors who know how to captivate their audience. Director Kris Smith brings a whole new outlook on the 'z-lister' name, creating a masterpiece. The hand held camera work makes the perspective personal, making you feel as though you're in the film. Darren potter plays a convincing role as johnny depp, pulling the ladies as one would with the appearance as jack sparrow. For a sequel to 'z-lister', it definitely beats all expectation and defines the reality of a struggling ex actor. Sex, violence and comedy rolled into one. If there's one Norwich based film you watch this year, make it this one!
