Noah s life is one of success - and excess. Everything - drink, drugs, girls, that Noah can get his hands on he wolfs down with an insatiable hunger. But he is running towards a brick wall - alcoholism and drug addiction have him firmly in their grasp.
With the help of good friends, Ray and Kirstin, Noah attempts to right his ship and when fate sends him a guardian angel in the shape of beautiful cellist Clare, Noah tries even harder to shift his focus from self abuse to self preservation and onto the road to selflessness... and that is when Mother Nature deals him the cruellest blow of all.
Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Stuart Browne, Dangerous Parking is a rollercoaster ride filled with love, pain, humour and compassion.

The language is strong, the subject matter difficult and the style of photography very different.
What adjective to use to describe the experience overall? Gritty, rough, very funny, sad, annoying, upsetting - they all fit. A doom and gloom anti drug, anti drink film this is not. More an adult view of the good and bad sides of uncontrollable habits with excellent acting and brilliant photography. And it is the humour and photography that makes this so compelling. No silly fancy tricks, but a modern, different approach to the photography adds to the story line, no silly "flash backs" but memories are dealt with in a most realistic way. The funny side is funny as only drunken people can be. I challenge you not to laugh when you get to the part that forms the title! A magic moment.
I'm left with the feeling that I watched someone I know go steadily downhill with very mixed emotions.
This is the best film that I've watched for a while and I fancy it will have "cult" status in no time.
Watch it! You'll miss something good if you don't.
The film takes the world of self important film media trendies and shows us the very personal story of one of those in the centre of it all, and his journey save himself. We get a narrative and a retrospective showing us how Noah Arkwright's life has led to the point where the end of it could be in sight, and the changes involved to try to salvage it. Most of the scenes jump between different times in Noah's life, this seems a bit strange at times though it's never disorientating - but like the pieces of a 3D Eiffel tower jigsaw, they all fall into place by the end of the film.
Peter Howitt gives a superb performance as Noah. He produced, directed, and wrote the screenplay for this film - `That fella from Bread' is obviously a very talented member of the British Film industry and I'll be looking out for future work. You get a real sense that he's found a genre he can excel in, "Sliding Door"s may well have been a clever concept - but he has definitely matured as a writer since "Johnny English"!
In a nutshell: Another reviewer drew parallels with Withnail and I (my favourite film of all time) and I think it's a great observation. This film is more emotional - but it has that same mix of seeing a man very much convinced of by own feeling of self importance become a man at his pitiful lowest.
What started off as a stylistic dark comedy becomes a poignant insight into the vulnerable mind of an alcoholic. Most of the dialogue becomes narration and this helps to emphasise the truly personal aspect of his story. It is a genuinely funny film at times, and a genuinely harrowing film too, it gets very emotional and brought a tear to my eye.
Based on the late Stuart Browne's critically acclaimed and semi autobiographical novel, this is a fantastic screen adaptation by writer, director, producer and lead actor Peter Howitt - thats right, the original Joey from the BBC comedy series Bread, although I'm sure he would rather forget that! What a shame he has spent so long behind the camera, when he is obviously such a talented actor.
Peter has spent the last decade or so directing movies such as Sliding Doors, Johnny English, Antitrust and Laws of Attraction, so, we approached this movie with mixed feelings. How wrong we were. Peter is absolutely brilliant in the lead role of Noah Arkwright, a film director whose life is in a downward spiral of drink, drugs & sex. I don't want to give too much away, but this movie had definite echoes of Alfie & Trainspotting, making us both laugh out loud one moment, and then gripped with suspense, horror & sadness the next. An incredibly difficult story to do justice to, but an obvious labour of love by cast, crew, and especially Peter himself.
The supporting cast, especially Sean Pertwee & Saffron Burrows are also excellent, very well cast indeed. Sean plays Noah's best friend and cameraman, who has saved himself from alcholic oblivion following a nasty experience with a squid! Saffron Burrows plays the woman in Noah's life, who may just be able to save him from himself. I have read that the film might have worked better if Howitt and Pertwee's roles had been swapped, but I disagree entirely.
I guess I should warn at this point that the film contains exceptionally strong language throughout, along with sex scenes, drug abuse, & full frontal male and female nudity. However, this must be seen in context and is an integral part of the story adding to both the suspense and comedic moments.
I fully expected to give this film a thumbs down, but have to admit that we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is an intriguing, funny & disturbing film in equal measure, making it very difficult to categorise. It's certainly not a "feel good" movie, nor does it contain classy big budget action scenes and CGI, but it is definitely one of the best we have seen this year.
If there was any justice in this world Peter Howitt would surely be nominated for a major award for either his outstanding performance, or his direction. Sadly thats unlikely, but having seen Dangerous Parking we look forward to seeing him in front of the cameras again very soon, because he is clearly far more talented than some of his previous work might suggest. 5 Stars!
