There is no other way that I could describe this film. It is filled with some of the most crazy and strange scenes that I have seen in film.

There was weird sex, masturbating, murder, drugs. Pretty much everything offensive that you could think of is in this film. It made me laugh, cringe and frown at some of the ridiculous stuff that happened in it.

In many ways it was this that made the film all the more shocking, but brilliant at the same time. I came out of the theatre speechless, I had no idea what to make of it or think. Now I have thought about it, I can see how good it really was.

James McAvoy gave filgh perfect performance in the lead role. Everything about the character that he portrayed was realistic, and I could feel the emotion coming out of him throughout his descent into madness.
