My third visit to a gala screening at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and not a dissapointing one.
This film is based on the writing of Douglas Lindsay and his 2008 novel The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson. It is Robert Carlyles directorial debut and is a dark and gruesome barber turns killer movie.
Not for the faint hearted the language in this Glasgow based film will shock if you are easily offended. In one of the scenes a cheeky wee Glesga boy asks Ray Winstone, one of the few non Scots in the cast, if there has been a murderrrrr but this film has a larger body count than any Taggart episode.
The cast list is like a who’s who of Scottish actors one notable exception being Ray Winstone. This is unlikely to be a hit outside Scotland however if you have a chance take a look at it.
