A masterfully written reverse whodunit on the surface but actually a great exploration of the spiritual.
 During the course of the film it becomes less and less important who the potential killer is as skeletons are uncovered in every cupboard. In a way it reminded me of Twin Peaks.

The film was excellent, profound, exceptionally scripted and superbly acted. But there were moments so dark (especially one) that I can't shake even though it's been several days and I sincerely hope that I eventually forget it. It always scares me when something so dark is in a film this good. Makes one feel hopeless.

But to end on a brighter note though - I will never forgive Dylan Moran's character for what he did to one of my favourite paintings:-).
