Mad Dog Bradley's reviews...

NETWORKING LUNCH

A familiar-feeling but nicely-handled minimalist comedy piece with good work from David Pasquesi and a particularly strong performance by Kimberly Michelle Vaughn. The attempt to capture a sort of sub-Woody Allen/Whit Stillman-type atmosphere just about works, and there’s a nice sense of melancholy and a surprise or two. And you’ve got to love that final fadeout.

THORAK THE POWERFUL

Sian Laycock’s short sharply satirises soulless modern move-making, and star Dave Beamish offers a particularly funny, increasingly desperate, and frenzied performance. Using a minimalist setting to her advantage, this works as both an amusing attack on big-budget Hollywood product (and damn CG FX!!!) and a scathing depiction of what might happen as actors continually play second-fiddle to technology.

M classification Coarse language and Adult Themes.
