    Look Who's Talking: the Reboot

    I shall henceforth worship the ground Alice Lowe walks on.

    Mainly because she has a deeply dark sense of humour and is extremely talented on all levels.

    And partly because she really scares me.

    Prevenge is so deadpan in its humour and its horror it won't work for everyone. For me it worked perfectly. It's wry, dry and twisted, making me laugh out loud on more than one occasion and look away in disgust on another.

    One could argue that its narrative is stretched a bit too thinly and there is probably some truth in that, but there is just so much bizarreness to relish I simply couldn't care less.

    Non-poetic review:

    Kudos to Alice Lowe for writing this in 3 1/2 days, filming it in 11 days, and starring in it, all well very pregnant. Not as much comedy as I was expecting, but it was far more insightful than I had anticipated. I really want to rewatch it soon but with my wife so as to get her input on someone who has carried around a small human inside them and essentially let it take our their life for 9 months.
