ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL UK INDEPENDENT FILMS I'VE SEEN IN YEARS
I was fortunate to see Muscle at the BFI Festival in London and what a pleasent surprise it was.The story concerns Simon (Cavan Clerkin) an office worker who is going through a mid life crisis and decides to join a gym. It's not long before he meets Terry (Craig Fairbrass) a trainer who offers to get Simon into shape.When Simon's wife leaves home Terry moves in and that's just the start of his problems.
Muscle is a taunt,edgy psychological thriller with some brilliant comedy touches.Written and directed by the talented Gerard Johnson (Hyena) it's a film you cant look away from and has you hooked from start to finish.Cavan Clerkin gives a marvelous performance as Simon while Craig Fairbrass gives one of his best screen performances as the dark and chilling Terry not a man to mess with.
Well done to all involved.
