Review of Rewind

This is a review of the movie Rewind which I edited. The review was part of the Irish Times round-up of the Galway Film Fleadh by Donald Clarke

“Do you fancy yet more sinister goings on in further windswept, leafless country roads? If so, you might wish to seek out PJ Dillon’s fine debut as a feature director. Rewind stars Amy Huberman as a former alcoholic – now married to a suburban money-bags – whose life comes to shreds when a dangerous old boyfriend saunters back into town. Co- written by Ronan Carr, creator of the much-loved short Coolockland, Rewind has just enough story to occupy its lean 80 minutes: the reformed character is lured away for an ill-fated road trip. Rewind is, however, particularly remarkable for Dillon’s own flinty cinematography and for two fine lead performances. Huberman, shaky, mad-eyed and icy, confirms that – all that Bod-marrying noted – she fully deserves fame in her own right. Playing the bad penny, Allen Leach, hitherto cheekily charming in Man About Dog and Cowboys and Angels , demonstrates an unsuspected ability to lurk with menacing intent. The picture deserves to be seen commercially.”

You can see the film’s imdb page here and give it a thumbs up if you like

The piece also gave good mentions to Sensation and Come On Eileen both produced by the good people at Blinder Films but somehow failed to mention “The Pipe” which was the main talking point of this years Fleadh
