Tony is a strikingly (pardon the pun) curious and offensive movie about a week in the life of a sad, repugnant, lonely, terrifying Englishman named Tony. It is the low budget, bastard offspring of American Psycho and A Clockwork Orange. The accents. The violence. The lack of details and motives surrounding Tony. Great dialog. Odd, but intriguing pacing. Few special effects. Fantastic writing. Spot-on acting.

But this isn't exactly a date flick. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone younger than VERY late teens. And it is not for the faint of heart or those prone to paranoid thoughts.

Takes a few minutes before the story really unfolds. But then it goes off like an Irish hand grenade. Worth the wait. And the price of a rental.
