Wild Goose Lodge

Another Tops of the Town movie directed by committee. Every scene has the exact same performance from the actors, local as extras (including a former rugby international), there's a big deal made about the confusing story, powerful music, goes on too long, confusing, and overall dull to watch. It's about a group of outsiders who get warned to leave the area for Dundalk. Of course they refuse resulting in a conflagration. Set in the past, it's on par with other similar productions like Under the hawthorn tree. The kind of picture that should get screened in a parish hall and kept away from our cinemas. There's one good scene of the build up to the fire but at over two hours it's a long wait.

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