Reviews

Een zwarte komedie uit 2007 van de Canadese regisseur Allan Moyle. Twee drugsverslaafde vrienden hebben grote schulden bij hun dealer. Wanneer hun vriendin overlijdt aan een overdosis besluiten ze haar te begraven in een leegstaande drive-in bioscoop, wat het begin is van een reeks verwikkelingen en bizarre gebeurtenissen. Monica Meijer (Movie2movie,i): '(...) een volslagen idioot avontuur (...) absoluut over-the-top (...) een feelgood variant van 'Pulp fiction' en 'Shallow grave' (...)'. Marcel Westhoff (8weekly,i): '(...) fraaie, clipachtige cinematografie, trendy soundtrack, bizarre personages, coole (en quotebare) dialogen, vele grappige verwikkelingen. (...)' Met extra's.

About Allan Moyle

Allan Moyle (born 1947 in Shawinigan, Quebec) is a Canadian film director. He is best known for directing the films Pump Up the Volume (1990) and Empire Records (1995).

Career

His first major film was Times Square (1980). During the editing of the film he clashed with producer Robert Stigwood who reportedly wanted dialogue scenes removed and replaced with more musical sequences, so that the accompanying soundtrack recording could be expanded to a double-album. Moyle refused to make the cuts so Stigwood fired him and made the cuts himself.

In the eighties he wrote a novel that was never published but became the basis for his screenplay of his movie Pump Up the Volume, which he also directed. It was released in 1990.

Moyle has since directed The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag (1992), Empire Records (1995), New Waterford Girl (1999) - for which he won the Best Direction Canadia…Read more on Wikipedia
