Bounce

April 7, 2009

This documentary is very funny, but not in the way that the film makers intended, I think. The tousle-haired bell-end interviewing the "donkies" thinks he's making a knowing and ironic "look at the northern monkeys" film (which is why they stick totally unnecessary subtitles on the dialogue and go out of their way to emphasise the "grim up north" motif), but instead he comes across as if Nathan Barley had aspirations to be Louis Theroux and went to interview the denizens of my local Liberal Club. When you watch it you're constantly urging his subjects to get sick of him taking the piss and give him a bloody good pasting. Sorry, put a Donk on him.

That's better.
