5.0 out of 5 stars Mullan does it again! Disturbing, violent and highly emotionally-charged. Brilliant., 29 Jun. 2014
This review is from: NEDS [DVD] (DVD)
Mullan as director coaxes incredible performances out of his actors once again in a film that summons the terror and confusion of a child entering the gladiatorial arena of adolescence. Mullan himself gives a great performance as the boy's father, appearing sometimes so darkly unhinged that it makes for uncomfortable viewing.

Special mention must go to the mesmerising acting talent of Stephen McCole, who has starred in all of Mullan's feature films. Here, he gives a great performance as a young teacher who takes no stick, but clearly cares for his students, presenting a realistic, non-sentimental glimmer of compassion in an otherwise hostile landscape. The young actors - Conor McCarron and Greg Forrest - who play younger and older John McGill are both also exceptional in their performances and I hope to see more of their impressive screen acting in the future.

Mullan as writer certainly plays with our sympathies for John, waxing and waning with every assault that occurs, whether it be from his father, a gang of neds, or inflicted by his own hand upon himself Neds is a film that is wild, idiosyncratic and dangerous, but also crafted, subtle and deeply moving. See it, but keep your mind and heart wide open, or you may miss the magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars PR explained in musician's terms!, 13 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In this book, Keith Thompson manages to decode the language and thought processes of journalists, radio stations, venue owners, managers and PR agents so that musicians can understand them. As a musician myself, I did not realise that in some ways, my approach to PR has been misguided, because until now, I had no insight into what journalists' goals are or what they perceive as merely nuisance rather than valuable, WORKABLE PR fodder. Keith's prose style is colloquial and accessible, which, when coupled with the concise nature of the book, appeals to those with a short attention span for PR matters. i.e. ALL musicians everywhere, probably! The creative personality and the PR personality often do not sit comfortably together in the same room, let alone the same mind, but Keith Thompson figuratively sits us all down with a nice cup of coffee and some jaffa cakes and explains how we can all get along, or even how we can be both personalities simultaneously. Musicians have access to recording equipment thousands of times more powerful than what was used in the Golden Age of music, the 60s and 70s, but what they still do not have is a broad understanding of how to promote their work on a budget. Keith Thompson's book will go a long way towards enlightening many about the "web" that stretches between all the necessary players in music PR, and how best to tread its uncertain threads.
