Goofs

After a night of heavy drinking Scott orders a taxi to Kemptown (although he's standing on Marine parade, Kemptown 100yds from his flat) which drives him away towards Hove. It keeps driving west - when Scott throws up by the pier the car is driving east and stops on the spot where he entered it about half a mile east of the pier (but now "at home") See more »

Kept Me Awake.
22 June 2003 | by theumpireSee all my reviews

Watched it last night on late night TV. Engrossing film. Not recommended for the very squeamish. The film contains some nudity and drug use, as well as vivid violent allusions. Wasn't too bad, took me to about 30-45 minutes before the end to know who the killer was and work out everything that was going on. Which is longer than most of the movies out and about today. Some interesting twists and turns mixed with some subtle humour. Kept me from going to bed until the very end. (I just had to know if they caught the killer!)

Worth watching at least once.
