A brooding dark movie set in a brooding dark Scottish locale. Even the daylight shots lack light. Ewan McGregor was superb as always, shlong exposed and all and he portrays very well a man whose dick rules his head and who therefore loses A brooding dark movie set in a brooding dark Scottish locale. Even the daylight shots lack light. Ewan McGregor was superb as always, shlong exposed and all and he portrays very well a man whose dick rules his head and who therefore loses his ethics in the end.

Subtitle this "Portrait of the Sociopath as a Young Man." Ewan MacGregor, along with the excellent score, make this very meditative film more and more satisfying as it slumbers along. It's slow.

I would not recommend this movie to 90% of the people that I know, and I wouldn't want to watch this movie again. Why? First of all, Ewan's penis shot. Second, it is depressing and Ewan's character is a bastard. But, the film is actually so memorable and well-done because of Ewan's performance.

Good performances throughout, but besides capturing some of the dirtiest, most revolting sex scenes ever filmed, it didnt serve much of a purpose and its plot was paper-thin.
