Reviews

David Hoyle co-directs his feature debut and stars in the title role in this unsettling tale of an uncle and his nephew (pornstar Ashley Ryder). Combines a heightened sense of English normality with the logic of madness.

This low budget, black comedy is David Hoyle's feature debut and he is joined by pornstar Ashley Ryder as his nephew. Both actors are improvising their lines which gives the whole work an edginess, heightened by the atmosphere of an out-of-season caravan-park on the Isle of Sheppey. The banalities of conversation between uncle and nephew are thrown into the realms of the utterly unconventional when we realise that not only are they involved in a sexual relationship but there is a sinister reason for their holiday. We are drawn into a world of disturbing madness, whose cracked logic is delivered with an unnerving avuncular charm.

"Uncle David" is one of those films you cannot decide whether to like or hate. Having watched the film twice, just in case I failed to understand the basic premise, I remain confused and dare I say a little repulsed at the content. Perhaps this is the essential purpose of the film, which seeks to jar one's ideas of normative morality and understanding, whilst passing critical comment on alternative relationships. Within the film, much of which takes place between the two central characters, are long diatribes against commercialism, religion and normative morality, which considering the genre of David Hoyle (a well known performance artist, who captivates audiences with his clever criticism of such things) makes some sense. However, within the genre of film, these speeches become somewhat tedious, and at times frustrating. The power relationship between "Uncle David" and his nephew at first seems cruel as the opening scene depicts, but it soon it becomes obvious that this relationship is indeed perverse as well as creul.

Ashley (played by Ashley Greene, better known as Ashley Ryder) seems to have embraced his character by the same name. Although his acting skills remain mechanical and removed. At times however, there seems to be a genuine connection between him and David Hoyle, and I expect had he (Ashley) had more acting experience (other than porn) he could have done a great deal better. Having said that he was not at all bad, and surprised me. Several scenes in the film are intensely powerful, and special mention should be made of the make-up scene in the trailer where there is a clever use of music, background porn and the eccentricity of David Hoyle as he is better known to his audience.

Format: DVD
I can hardly believe this repellent film has won the four awards shown on the cover. It is utterly worthless and actually deeply offensive. The fact that Ashley Ryder looks cute in swimwear, nude and in kinky gear, and that there are one or two scenes of interest only serves to underline what garbage the rest is; they could have taken those scenes and built a much more interesting film with them, but the whole thing is so misconceived and life-denying it isn't worth analysing. I'm sure Ashley Ryder can be seen to exciting effect in his porn films without this horrible surrounding context - much better to go for those! In fact it makes an interesting absurdity that they are not available on amazon, whereas this film, which really justifies the use of the word obscene, is.

self-righteous twaddle that seeks to glamourise/justify the brainwashing, sexual abuse and cold-blooded murder of a handicapped young man with learning difficulties. Is this supposed to be entertainment?

I barely write reviews but I'm forced to warn people off this film - it truly is flesh-creepingly repellant ... and don't expect a happy ending. I can't imagine why someone wrote this, let alone actually landed a budget, a crew, and a DVD from it. If you are a sick voyeur, you'll likely enjoy the movie. But with real humanity - one to avoid.

From start to finish this film is a flight of fantasy for the producers and directors of the film. Within five minutes of watching boredom sets in and sleep beckons. A good film for insomniacs who need something to help them sleep. A waste of good money.
