You can tell it's his first film - That Sinking Feeling review by LD

Spoiler Alert
24/09/2019

I'm a big fan of Local Hero and Gregory's Girl, and didn't even know of this film prior to it being discussed on a Mark Kermode documentary.

I understand the achievements of a young director on a shoestring budget putting this together, but this just felt a bit drawn out.

The surreal humour that I think works really well in Gregory's Girl feels a bit rusty here, a bit laboured.

Maybe the reason I'm only giving it two stars is because Forsyth's later films are so much more finely tuned.
