This was Richard Jobson's directorial debut and it is a very stylish effort. Clearly, the subject matter is not entirely original - outstanding films have been made on the subject of alcoholism from The Lost Weekend through to My Name Is Joe. But Jobson's effort is a worthwhile entry into this pantheon and he elicits great performances from his actors including Kevin McKidd in the lead role with support from Laura Fraser, Susan Lynch and Lewis MacLeod. The film has a number of resemblances for me, notably with the aforementioned My Name Is Joe, but probably more obviously A Clockwork Orange and Gillies MacKinnon's masterpiece Small Faces (in which both McKidd and Fraser gave early impressive performances). Some of the pub singing sequences are also reminiscent of Terence Davies.

However, despite such influences Jobson brings his own particular brand, or mix, of realism and dreamlike quality to the piece, underpinned by a great music score, and (for me) is entirely convincing. Laura Fraser provides a typically stalwart performance as the music store salesperson with whom McKidd becomes infatuated, and Susan Lynch is outstanding as the alcoholics' circle companion trying to wean McKidd off his obsession with alcohol (and violence).

This is just the sort of British film that should receive much greater exposure/promotion on release, instead of the very limited release it was given. Sadly, I don't believe that Jobson has matched this sterling effort in his subsequent films, most appear to have disappeared without trace and New Town Killers (which I did see), whilst an interesting idea (in effect a foretelling of the current global financial crisis!), was not as impressive as this debut.

I hadn't thought Kevin McKidd's acting was very strong in Trainspotting , so was subsequenty really impressed by how he played the character of Frankie Mac. Very strong cast throughout in fact. From the start he was portrayed as quite a thoughtful and theatrical wee boy, who took in everything around him .. and this made the transition to his older personna quite consistant and believable, with that contrast between striving for that beautiful love and good things for his life, and the inevitable triggers that dragged him back into negative self-destruction. I don't know if there is such a term of a mindful. rather than mindless, thug but i think that term would suit Frankie well. You wanted it all to work out for him, but knew at the same time it never would. Some lovely touches where you were never quite sure whether his simmering anger was about to erupt or not. There were one or two little things that annoyed me in the film, but they were minor and to bring them up would be nit picking.... so not a perfect 5 , but a strong 4 :)

For his first full length feature former Skids frontman Richard Jobson has come up with an extremely good debut. Watching the main character Frankie's downward spiral to oblivion, despite the efforts of others to save him, is sad yet compelling. Kevin McKidd gives an excellent performance as the doomed Frankie who is all too aware of the direction that he is headed but is powerless to do anything about it. As an added bonus there are some great shots of Edinburgh, particularly of the parts the tourists will seldom tread. Highly recommended.
