A homicide detective goes undercover as a patient to investigate a psychotherapist he believes is linked to a strange double murder. As his therapy sessions continue the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur.
A has-been actor best known for playing the title character in the 1980s detective series "Mindhorn" must work with the police when a serial killer says that he will only speak with Detective Mindhorn, whom he believes to be a real person.
This is a wholly disappointing film from start to finish.
The story is weak and uninteresting. It had the potential to be a reasonable story, but that seems to have been sacrificed for something someone (probably the luvvy brigade) thinks is a bit humorous over drinks and ego massages.
It was incredibly tedious to watch - so tedious I fell asleep twice and had to watch it again just in case I had missed a pivotal moment or two - I hadn't.
I am a fan of British independent film making that shows talent and skill - even if it's not perfect. But this film just fails to make my low standards.
You'd probably find eating a cheese and nail sandwich more interesting - one to miss.
