Young Adam (2003)

At a glance:
A rather claustrophobic sex-soaked drama about a bloke who knows somethin about a dead woman found in a river. Yes, it's another movie where you can see Ewan McGregor's one-kilo knob, just like Rogue Trader, Trainspotting, Stay and my favourite McGregor film, The Pillow Book. Movie has no real resolution nor reward but it's shot marvelously and does have some pretty interestin performances.
Perennial wonderment:
Tilda Swinton, who plays an adulterous and brutally amoral old hag in this movie. She's completely unattractive yet you still wanna boink her, just like in Orlando.
Reminds me of:
David Cronenberg's Spider with Ralph Fiennes. It has that same kind of troubled quietness to all its scenes. However it's more of a one-man drifter movie than a mystery-thriller like that one.
Watch out for:
An absurd sex scene involvin custard (good custard too, insists Ewan's character) - this scene is apparently so bizarre and outrageous that the baffled actor questioned the director many times about it. For the pervo, it was absolutely great seein Emily Mortimer nude in that scene. Voted one of the worst sex scenes ever in fim history - and I absolutely enjoyed it. Hell I've been in love with Emily Mortimer's body since Robert Carlyle got a taste of it in The 51st State. Lucky cunt.
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?
Three and a half. Those Scottish river life scenes were just as interestin as the sex scenes.
