An attempt at a spiky commentary on modern masculinity that works in fits and starts. Although suitably grungy in appearance, the style is too knowingly manic, striking all over the place with subliminal cutting and trick camera work and the shallow characterisation barely lifts it above the stereotypes it wishes to caricature let alone any level of catharsises.

This was my coming-of-age film. It came at the perfect time in my life, grabbed me by the collar and defied me to challenge its brazen, primal scream of frustration and disillusionment. This movie changed my life. It taught me that no one is in control of me but myself and that initial realization is liberating as hell. It's also one cool movie and really well made. Definitely check it out if you haven't.
