Out of here

Awful and dull movie about a returned emigrant who's dropped out of art college. It's like a sequel twenty years later to Snakes and ladders where the movie follows Moxley's son! Similar scenes (e.g. rave) but these young people are too dull to enjoy themselves. Are we supposed to feel sorry for this guy because he didn't get his degree from NCAD? As if his friends are going to get a decent job with a useless degree in fine art! There's absolutely nothing new in the film, every scene has been done before in previous Irish titles. Uses a disjointed observational style but there's nothing in the movie to interest. The similar but less stylish Gingerbread men is much better. Yet another turkey that's getting decent reviews because it got Film Board funding! What's missing from Irish cinema? Not this sh-te!

Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
