Synopsis9-Dead-Guys---Steven-BerkoffWinner of the Festival Prize at the Montreal Comedy Festival in 2002 as well as the Audience Award at the Dublin Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, this wild and irreverent trip through London’s gay club scene is a guaranteed larf-a-thon. Byron and Kenny, Irish lads out to make it big in London, cruise the clubs hoping for a quick buck and a little fun along the way. Instead they keep bumping into The Grim Reaper, as one after the other a succession of crazy characters drop dead. Not to be put off their main quest (a legendary stash of cash) they negotiate a forest of loonies — an aging sugar daddy (magnificent Steven Berkoff), a desperate dwarf, a drooling letch, an orthodox Jew with size issues, and the scariest female owner of possibly the seediest bar in Europe. It’s the London movie Guy Ritchie should have made, audacious and bold, with all the joyful cinematic élan that only a truly brave – or crazy – director could get away with. Must-see cinema.
