Best Irish noir tranny-murder thriller comedy ever
I had been hearing people rave about this film for ages and finally got a chance to check it out myself a few weeks ago. Since then, I've watched it several more times, usually in a state of artificially induced euphoria. It is fantastically original, visually unique (shot on reversal stock), referential to an extraordinary degree (Brendan Behan, James Joyce, Jesus and Bobby Sands all turn up at various points), uses Tom Waits lyrics for dialogue and in the film's funniest line, uses Dr. Dre to slag off Southside Dublin... Try and see it, however you manage to do that. It's essential.
