Tedious Movie
1 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

Unbelievably tedious movie. Colin Friels as a sex object?? I don't think so. And the men that pay to have sex with Hughes would pretty much have to pay to have sex with anyone. She a bit dull, and the dialog is inane to the point of tedium; but the train steward adds a lovely touch of melancholy to the piece. The ending is so dull though, that you wonder why you even bothered.

Oh, well, here's why:

Lewis Fitz-Gerald is brilliant. Dark and disturbing, the movie only gets interesting when he shows up. He's mastered the challenging physicality of the crippled brother, as well as the psychological damage that losing everything does to a person, and lays it all out for the audience in less than 10 minutes total screen time. Sadly, none of the other actors can compete.
