Freeze frame

Strange one this. Partly funded by our own IFB and RTE this was made in Northern Ireland and post-produced here. Yet it seems to be more of a British movie? Kind of like 1984 it has a character under suspician and his every move gets recorded. Except he is doing all the recording. After being accused of murdering a family Evans becomes paranoid. There's a cop, a woman, and a writer after him. Like several other Irish movies the male character gets raped by a woman! Saw this in the cinema and it looked sh*t but on DVD it's actually quite impressive. A lot of what Evans believes is possible and though he goes through hell it's not that bad because he's funny! One scene looked like it was filmed yet again in Kilmainham jail?
