The film’s creator (Shane Currath) and his audience pride themselves on not needing ANY exposition whatsoever. It’s actually an impressive achievement, with about 10 minutes of dialogue out of 93 minutes total. If that’s enough of a draw for you, stop reading and go watch it – it is actually a good immersive and dreamlike experience.
A review and information on “Unquiet Graves”, a documentary by Seán A. Murray, which I attended the screening of today in Galway. The production involved an Irish and English crew and tells the story of collusion between the British military, police, and MI6 with Loyalist paramilitaries, with a particular focus on “The Glennane Gang” responsible for the slaughter of 120 innocent Irish Catholics in the 1970s.
Right out the gate observation: this one-season-wonder was mistaken by people to be the fictional in-story TV series it lampooned. Although it received great reviews from both critics and viewers, who actually gave it time, the Fox show could have caught a lot more eyeballs if it sold itself for what it actually is – a dark comedy.
