Descripción del producto
El reloj avanza hacia El último minuto, pero nadie se da cuenta. Nadie, excepto Billy Byrne. Él no tiene de qué preocuparse: es joven, atractivo y con talento; es "la última sensación" o al menos es lo que dicen los "paparazzi" londinenses en las calles, en los clubes, en los negocios. Pero se equivocan, y Billy Byrne se hunde en un segundo. Su mundo estalla, su autoestima se hace añicos. De pronto, está en una montaña rusa que se hunde en el submundo de Londres... Un peligroso territorio de asesinos, ladrones y representantes artísticos.

The story is fantastical; just watching it is like being shot through a blow-dart gun of fantasy, but the gun's real. Wonderfully manipulative direction, I can't compare this movie to any other because it would be just that: a comparison, and there is no point in comparing a unique film with another.
The writer manages to convey a message of the unreality of reality. His colors are brilliant, his music sharper than glass, and the sounds of this spooky little world actually have texture.
This man has really beat the living hell out his peers. His grasp of satire and story-telling is far more mature than it should be for his age. It's an overwhelming film and often difficult to watch; there is so much emotion happening. It's funny, it's sad, it's maddening, it's frustrating.
It's just a gorgeously decadent film and I wish we were allowed to cuss on these reviews because I cannot say enough how good this movie is. Buy this movie. Get the unrated version. Watch it a hundred times. Learn from it. Learn from him.
After being lobotomized by this beautifully horrible world that's been created, you'll at the very least be left with one thing: Stephen Norrington's un-paralled combination of stunning visuals and music as a technique of story-telling after there are no more words left to say.
But the second half was quite terrific! I absolutely liked the "Oliver Twist"-kind-a-like storyline. And since I only purchased this movie because of director Stephen Norrington, I wasn't disappointed at all.
When it comes to the dvd itself, I only DEEPLY have to complain about one thing: there are no subtitles available whatsoever! Since I'm German and quiet fluently in the American English language, I really had a VERY HARD TIME getting all the British accents and dialogues straight. It almost made my head spin!
But still worth an experience.
I'm not a fan of avant-garde anything, but I quite enjoyed the dark vision of this camera verity/music video-style movie. The cast is excellent with standout performances from Max Beesley as Billy, Jason Isaacs as Dave "Percy" Sledge, the singer/drug dealer, and Tom Bell as Grimshanks, the Fagin-like drug dealer/failed actor. The ickiest moments for me in this film were when Max is invited to Club Prosthesis, a kinky underground fetish club. The whole "medical procedure" theme made my skin crawl. The discovery of what was behind the closed door in the club was (frankly) funny and oddly charming by comparison. By far the best moments of the movie were the "musical interludes" by Percy Sledge, a psychotic killer, who alternates between homicidal rages and crooning like Frank Sinatra. It sounds bizarre, but the two "music video" moments actually blend in seamlessly to the whole movie.
The only drawback to this movie was a technical problem with the DVD itself. On the copy I had, the cursor tended to blend in so well with the background of several pages including the opening page that I had to guess as to its location. As a result, I doubt that I found all of the extra features on this DVD. As a side note, be sure to watch the movie all the way through the end credits as there are extra character scenes stuck in this last sequence.
While the overall tone of the movie is dark and gritty, the ending is uplifting and hopeful. "The Last Minute" is really a meditation on art, commercialism, and what it means to be an artist. I highly recommend this flick.
The DVD extras are (mostly) exceptional adding to the whole experience as few extras features ever do. As darkly hilarious as it is, this "Minute" also packs quite an emotional punch. Kudo's to Mr. Norrington who deserves greater recognition for this amazing film.
One caveat: Norrington wisely employs a terrific device by which we never know what our protagonist does to earn then lose his fame (director and star are on record as being at odds as to what Billy actually does). Were only that same thing had been employed for one scene: When Billy is told he doesn't want to know what's behind a certain door, we shouldn't find that out either. Personally, I laughed (in horror, but laughed) at this scene but I know others who were put off by the movie altogether because of these few seconds.
Every other aspect of the truly most bizarre nightclub "Prosthetic" is genius (as, actually is the moment in question, just too off-putting for most people). It is here where one of the film's most brilliant moments occurs: Percy "Sledge" breaking into the Sinatra classic "I've got you under my skin" while wreaking a gleeful malevolent stream of violence that is about as close to movie magic as we've ever seen.
Norrington has a cast that, quite simply, could not have been improved upon with Max Beesley giving a stand out performance as Billy - to watch the youthful energy of his clubby dance moves and the enthusiasm with which he embraces his burgeoning fame slip into confused despair, hopelessness and attempt at self redemption. Beesley has us routing for him even at his worst, for I think most of us can identify with Max's plight.
As the aforementioned Percy "Sledge" - Jason Isaacs is nothing short of terrifying, executing his violence with a Fred Astaire like grace and precision which is utterly disarming.
The Oliver Twist twist of the underground urchins with their modern day, more violent, Fagin (who doles out drug treats to the kiddies) is chillingly beautiful.
I also found the extended mad scene similar resonating strongly with Shakespeare's Lear - Max's meltdown/unhinging being so closely tied with what is happening in nature. Brilliant.
If "Minute" had been released theatrically stateside, I can't imagine it wouldn't do huge box office. There are audiences literally screaming for this type of originality. Hopefully, it's not too late to try. The seconds are ticking . . .
Seriously. See this movie. Or else!
