A little clunky and rough around the edges given that this is Izzard's first stand-up film but it was better than I expected and still had plenty of funny bits. My favourite part was the bit about Jesus but I also enjoyed watching the backstage footage from before the show and during the interval, I've never seen that in a stand-up film before. It's not his best performance but demonstrates his inherent comedic talent well. Due to low performance rights…
A very enjoyable psychological horror film with a strong sense of atmosphere before the opening logos have even started. The cinematography by Freddie Francis is moody and shadowy and I liked the slightly uneasy tone throughout. You know that something dark and sinister is lurking beneath the facade of normality but it's never completely confirmed, leaving you with lasting feeling of uncomfortable curiosity. Very well made and often subtly effective, as well as being interesting and impressive for its time.
