Quite Cruel
17 November 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Not a great effort. It starts with a woman standing in front of a fireworks store. She is accosted by an old guy with a beard. He is drunk and she tires of his advance and she slugs him. As he lies in the street, a group of rowdies rob him. They then break into the fireworks store and steal some stuff. They set it up around the old man and watch as he writhes in panic as the fireworks go off. It is almost over when another barrage hits. At the end the men smile at the camera. I guess the suffering of an old man was acceptable.
