A seedy young Brit obsessed with following people -- harmlessly at first -- meets a like-minded bloke, and the pair soon graduate to breaking and entering. But they meet their match in a tough blonde dame who may have dubious plans of her own.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Christopher Nolan's super-low-budget first feature was definitely good enough to propel him from indie films into more mainstream fare. But seeing it for the first time 14 years later, it's primarily useful only to gain better understanding of his style. The fractured narrative and plot twists feel rote, and the grainy black & white photography and muffled sound really hurt the entertainment factor. The actors are really engaging; it's a shame that they've done so little work since this.
