London psycho
1 June 2016 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This Film tells the story of a record industry talent scout in the 1990's London, who stops at nothing when it comes to career advancement.

Firstly, the music in the film is great because those songs are the songs I grew listening to. Hearing relatively non hit tracks such as "The Private Psychedelic Wheel", or other big hits like "Encore Une Fois" brings back memories of those great years!

Nicholas Hoult is insanely handsome in this film. He's charming and likable even though his character is reminiscent of "American Psycho". That's what make the film very interesting and engaging. I really enjoyed it.
