A Decent Man - Is Down All The Way
11 June 2017 | by krocheavSee all my reviews

There's not a great deal to enjoy in this overstretched, depressing French movie. If taken as a vehicle for showing urban detachment, it might please some but overall, it's simply telling us what we already know. Long drawn out hand-held camera shots following actors in and out of doors etc, is the first sign of not having enough story to carry the distance over a full feature. The main character obviously had some serious personal problems well before being savagely worked over by local no-hoper criminals so, this incident alone was not the sole reason for his escalating, destructive bad attitudes.

Simply setting part of your story in a major retail store, then blending cross-cut images of consumerism and its effect on our daily lives - is a rather poor excuse for going on a suicide mission and gunning people down in public places. As it stands, A Decent Man is just another depressing homemade-indie type movie. Performances are OK if you're in the mood for these now, sadly overly familiar, angry antics but, there's little of any true depth here. It might prove more valuable investing your hard earned time looking for more uplifting material.
