THE STUNTMEN - & THE CUNNING STUNTS THEY PULL
The Stuntmen - tom bruggen feature film Manchester Films & Insurgency Films
The 'stuntmen' Hank & Ripper's ghetto Restaurant: notorious 'business' partners of 30 years its a hotbed of 'stunts', singing & sex.
Hank's arranging a surprise farewell for ageing Ripper who's sentenced life for a mysterious murder. Their warped 'family' turn out: damaged ghosts - cheated-women,
To the emotional trip-hop act crooning contrapuntal romance Ripper's bathetic drunken diatribe tales of his undoing, crisscrossing competitively with Hank's own combatitive convoluted 'cunt'fessional of deluded wrongdoing.
The disturbing drama fatally twists through life-bludgeoning revelations: ex-wives, lovers, and incestuous pregnant children.
Blackening comically into a moral vortex begging whether the life-time of dysfunction was destined by semio-mythology or the 'truth' of moral relativity.
'a dirty, sexy, finger-sniffin 'bleak-comedy', - talk about violence! - reads like a cross between Reservoir Dogs & The Bird Cage. Knowing these guys it will make everything I've ever seen look like mere popcorn. It'll never get a certificate!'
