Fascinating Intrusion into the Mind of an Artist

I thought this was a brilliant film,about edgey artist Adam Cullen and his sometimes abusive interaction with his young biographer. You totally forget you are watching actors and a depiction. A portrait of an artist as a borderline psychotic with some fascinating dialogue in this warts and all film.
