Classic B Movie
Filth City is an excellent low budget satirical farce, using Toronto's Rob Ford years as a jumping off point and ending with an impressive body count. It may not be everyone's cup of tea (or bowl of crack), but I found it entertaining from start to finish with a well-written script, credible acting, and engaging characters.
Almost all of the characters are deeply flawed, but at the same time, hardly any of them come off as irredeemable villains, and that's a tribute to the writing. There's a bit of pathos here and there, and a high degree of gore, but mainly, the filmmakers are delivering up comedy. Standout comic performances include Pat Thornton as Mayor Hogg and Chris Locke as a bumbling cop. But really, there are laughs to be had in almost every scene.
The film doesn't take itself too seriously, and as long as you don't either, and you're willing to laugh at all the absurdity, I highly recommend it.
