This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Few people have appreciated this for the horror masterpiece it is.
The first clue is when the guy's friends buy him a really nice acoustic guitar in a hardshell case. That's best part of a grand right there. Who spends that kind of money on their friends, honestly? An oligarch maybe. But not a primary school teacher and the assorted no-hope mates of a failed musician.
There's clearly more to this than meets the eye.
Then he gets it out…
Imagine Ex Machina remade for morons who can't put their phones down for more than 5 minutes, with deliberate nods to RoboCop, Aliens, Die Hard and Wallace and Gromit: A Close Shave, starring a female lead who is out-acted by a nine-year-old who is in turn out-acted by a robot, and with a personalised number plate for a title. It's exactly as much fun as it sounds.
