WHAT’S IT LIKE?

This is a shockingly impressive low budget feature debut from Passmore and Haberman.
It’s an affectionate portrayal of a loner and a loser, who’s desperate to make his mark on the world herunterladen.
As he begs us to share his belief that he’s developed super powers, throwing in his old existence for a new life of crime-fighting, designing his own super-hero costume, it’s so blatantly clear that he’s losing his mind, you just want to jump into the film and slap him handy spiele kostenlosen.
Every time he pushes his body to the test – you feel the pain he doesn’t, as his costume rips and blood drips from his face – while inside, he just goes from strength to strength mp3 van youtube downloaden mac.
He’s a desperately sad case, played by Rapaport with devastating warmth.
One of the clever things about the film is that no matter how much you feel like weeping for Les, you also sympathise with the people he believes are the bad guys – the conspiracy that’s out to strip him of his powers Download tv now app tv series.
With a story like this, it could so easily have been given the Farrelly-brothers or Adam-Sander-esque treatment, but instead, we’re treated to an unusually mature, thought-provoking, off-beat and downbeat drama mediathek br.
It’s one of the few films I’ve seen this year where my main complaint is that it’s too short.
