a profound masterpiece
3 September 2014 | by eviltuna33See all my reviews

Forget godfather, and shaw shank, this short is where its at,a mind blowing and an emotional roller-coaster, Ruairi Tohill (aka the roost) plays some down on his luck ball bag, but life changes for the better, he is sensational, reminds me of a young Barry from Easterners. this picture changed my life, the twist and turns were similar to that of Freddy got fingered, a must watch. Denzil must be shitting himself after a performance like young Tohill.

The inspiration i have gained from watching this has motivated me in so many ways, happy as Larry is second to none. The cast the costumes, the director were exceptional. I need more! Talks of a sequel were in the pipeline are on the go, but I think they were 700 quid short. in summary, epic, sublime, a treat visually and verbally.
