The Legend of Barney Thomson

Description
The movie centers on Barney Thomson, a hapless barber, devoid of charm and 'patter' whose uninteresting life is about to go from 0 to 60 in five seconds, as he enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer.

Above all you have Emma Thompson delivering an infernal and hilarious performance that steals the (rotten) heart of the movie. [Full review in Spanish]

Robert Carlyle is excellent as the lugubrious and downtrodden Barney, but as he makes his directorial debut here his rhythm on this deadpan comedy is erratic.

Not as clever as it wants to be, some comic bits stumble and the ending is ridiculous, although Carlyle and Thompson give it their best shot.

Scottish actor Robert Carlyle makes a bold impression as a first-time director with Barney Thomson, a brash, dirty little film that's eager to please in devilish ways.

If you grew up south of Gretna Green, bribe a Scot to translate the thick Glaswegian accents in Robert Carlyle's grisly serial killer comedy.

The movie's relentless grimness renders the characters into caricatures, each more miserably shallow than the last.

It's fine, and on occasion it even flirts with looney tune greatness, but mostly it's held back by predictability.

Uneven dark comedy about a barber and a serial killer.

Thompson steals her scenes and provides many of the comic highlights, while the screenplay gradually becomes detached from reality and loses its emotional grip.

Over-the-top and irritating without being funny or clever enough. If only the audience were to have as much fun as the actors seemed to be having.

You don't have to be a Scot to laugh yourself silly at The Legend of Barney Thomson, although canny viewers will no doubt catch more of the inside references.

There may be no improvement of the human condition to be found here, but there's a pervasive solidarity - like a ratty sofa whose dilapidation is inseparable from its coziness.
