Paul is a novelist
who has become hopelessly bored with his life. One day, he (literally)
bumps into Billy in a car crash. Billy doesn't have insurance but - instead
- offers to buy Paul a drink and takes him to a nearby strip club inside
a rundown pub. Paul is immediately intrigued by the 'forbidden' environment
of easy sex and plentiful drugs, He is gradually lured into Billy's unconventional
world and becomes fascinated by his new friend's obsession with brutal
bare-knuckle fighting competitions where 11-year-old boys batter each
other senseless. Risking everything - including his relationship with
girlfriend Juliette - Paul decides to take a walk on the wild side and
wallow in the incomprehensible degradation.
This debut film from Penny Woolcock has been both praised and damned for
the very same reasons. It is very strong, brutal and uncompromising as
it ventures headstrong towards its shocking XXX conclusion. Does it go
too far? An argument could be made either direction. Yes, this is a very
disturbing film and it pulls no punches.
