Filth is the first of two films chosen to watch as part of the Canberra International Film Festival. I'm not sure what to say about this film, aside from it isn't for the faint hearted. James McAvoy is brilliant. He is usually swoon-worthy in most films, but this, not very likeable and absolutely unswoon-worthy.
This film is in your face and entirely unexpected. The cinematography is impressive and even at its bleakest the film is quite stunning. Some parts are hilarious and others are just uncomfortable and I don't want to give too much away but if you see it, the plot will knock your socks off.
Look, I'll just say go see it, but know at the end you'll need a drink or two to work through it. Just not whiskey.
