Storyline

Meet Tony, a withdrawn, socially-awkward, and unemployed man living in a depressingly blah flat in a working-class part of London. In his free time, when he's not busy being an amateur butcher, Tony enjoys watching VHS action films on a small and obsolete TV, querying escort agencies and prostitutes about their services and prices, meeting new and interesting people on the streets and in gay bars, and taking long walks by the waterside, where he dumps body parts. Tony enjoys the occasional beer and a toke of crack, and is a non-smoker. He's lonely, badly in need of a cuddle, and would love to have you over for a powdered fruit drink and an uncomfortable and mundane chat and that bit of warmth that a corpse just can't provide.

Quotes

[first lines]
Tony: [Tony walks up to a DVD seller on the street] Hello, how are you? All right.
Tony: [Tony doesn't get a response] I haven't got a DVD player, I've only got a video recorder, I'm afraid. You should sell videos. If you had any action films on video, I'd buy them from you.
Tony: [Tony still doesn't get a response] What do you think... What do you think is better, um, karate or kung fu? I'll see you, then. Might see you tomorrow.
[Tony walks off]

TONY: An underestimated 'Could easily happen' small gem
20 March 2010 | by mick6969See all my reviews

A small budget, short film, well acted by all, the film puts the story across as a 'Fly On The Wall' real life drama and is really put across so very well, that this kind of person: Low life,no connections,loner could so easily do this kind of crime and get away with it, very easy without being ever getting caught.

Certain 'so called' reviewers have had a go at this gem of a Lottery financed film and if the truth be known these people have never lived in the East End of London, I do and have all my life , Tony is shot in the area and the surrounding neighbouring areas where I live.

There are literally hundreds of these kind of weird, lonely, strange and some dangerous psychos walking daily in the streets of East London, who knows? with so many "Have You Seen This Missing Person" posters all year round amounting to many people disappearing never to be found? This Tony character could easily be a real person.

Friends and other people who have seen the film, have all said the same as myself, make a sequel the film is brilliant...
