  1. But the film has a poetic pulse, its ups and downs accompanied by some smartly chosen pop songs, a seductive original score and McKidd's husky voice-over narration.
  2. Reviewed by: Derek Elley

    The highly directed film adopts a semi-impressionistic approach more European than British in flavor, aided by a terrific central performance by Kevin McKidd and painterly lensing by John Rhodes.
  3. A full-flavored, absorbing tragedy.
  4. A pretty ugly movie in its own right.
  5. 50
    Despite reams of maudlin narration, McKidd's powerful performance as a conflicted man makes this beautifully shot low-budget feature worth checking out.
  6. The tedium of this antidrinking hoodlum's tale inspires the wrong kind of longing entirely.
  7. 50
    Overall, it's a seriously flawed but impressive and promising debut.
