“The Chumscrubber,” directed by Arie Posin

Movie, 2005

Small town, cookie cut American psycho-drama, whose main focus is on loner Dean, who discovers Troy, his best friend, hung in an outbuilding in Troy’s parents’ suburban garden. Dean is one of a number of characters who don’t fit into any kind of normality, usually well-handled and well acted by a largely British cast. The pace and action are great, as is the look of the film. While there are a few bits that misfire – for example, the video game which lends its name to the film – there’s plenty to keep the viewer switched, focused and entertained. Again, perhaps some of the eccentricities stretch a little too far, like the mayor’s obsession with dolphins, but overall, this is a decent, dark comedy.
