The third feature from acclaimed writer-director Gerard Johnson following Tony (2009) and Hyena (2014) offers a timely and bruising portrait of amplified masculinity as it follows Simon (Clerkin) who falls under the spell of a personal trainer who slowly instils himself in Simon’s life.

An intense, provocative and necessarily unsettling work, the film, evocative of a British Fight Club in its look at excess testosterone, also offers an at times savagely funny and desperately accurate black and white snapshot of struggling figures lost, confused and adrift in an increasingly desperate landscape. Written, directed and performed with a lean economy, think The Servant meets Performance. The score is courtesy of Matt Johnson/The The.
