An Acquired Taste.,
This review is from: Dangerous Parking  [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)I suspect this film is a lot more enjoyable for viewers who can identify with the lead character, or for anyone who finds addictions terribly interesting.
In its favour it has a strong cast who almost without exception give good performances, often in spite of the poor dialogue on offer.
Unfortunately, the themes that drive the narrative are seldom treated in a sufficiently 'real' way to make for either truthful and affecting drama or genuine black comedy. Instead, the whole fim is reduced to the level of an ITV Drama Of The Week with added multiplex music and schoolboy swearing.
It certainly improves as it goes along, but that's rarely an encouraging trait in a film. The welter of zany directorial tricks and stunts in the first half hour or so eroded far too much of this reviewer's goodwill.
