Excellent one off drama
9 August 2006 | by LfcMotd73See all my reviews

I caught this on More4 recently. I thought it was going to be a documentary but with the excellent Isaacs in it I knew it was going to be a good drama. But it's done in documentary style and your whole interest lies on whether you want to see JI doing a series of vignettes to camera. He plays a former violent psycho who has tried to amend his ways and Leo Regan films his confessionals in a set of one-on-ones. If you are not a fan of the actor it's best to stay clear but it is a brilliant study in working class, violent,drink and drug macho ism and what makes a man like him tick. I know guys like him honestly and I grew up in areas like his. He's the sort of guy you don't mess with in a pub. His speech patterns and ideals are exactly like many blokes I've known. Isaacs is truly menacing and absorbing at one and the same time. Great piece of work from a great actor working back home for a change.
