This review is from: The Low Down [DVD] (DVD)
There are some films that disprove the theory about plot being integral; Withnail and I, Lost in Translation, Waking Life to name but a few, and The Low Down is another great example of this.
There's no need for me to describe this film - you can read the synopsis for that. The performances are great and are, essentially, all that matters. Aiden Gillen is wonderful in the lead role, capturing the slight awkwardness, hints of OCD and insecurity of his character brilliantly. But the best performace in this film comes from Kate Ashfield who plays the dreamy Ruby. Be warned, though, if you're as sloppy a male as I am, you will fall head-over-heels in love with this character. I cannot begin to dscribe how utterly scrumptious she is in this film.
