    The actors playing school kids are all in their mid twenties making the whole thing quite ridiculous. Why they couldn't have cast it appropriately I have no idea.

    I saw this film tonight and enjoyed it a lot. Alan Bennett does a sweet thing; he has the lads quote Wittgenstein. Two quotes:  "The world is all that is the case", and "What we cannot speak about we must consign to silence". Wittgenstein's first and final Propositions in the Tractatus. Bennett employs this to encapsulate all of philosophy and thought. It's a grand film. Thanks to Paul Hawkins.

    Actually the quote was 'History, it's just one fucking thing after another'. Totally brilliant and a worthy partner to 'You can't polish a turd'. Great film.

    Big Bang Love, Juvenile A (2006)

    An unknown future. A boy confesses to the murder of another in an all-boy juvenile detention facility. More an exercise in style than storytelling, the story follows two detectives trying to uncover the case. Homosexual tension and explosive violence drives the story which delivers some weird and fascinating visuals.
