The Black Guelph: Review. By Richard Schertzer.

‘Trainspotting’ called and they want their movie back. It seems that every single character stereotype came to light in this movie without breaking any new ground for European drug addicts in cinema.

In the film, Kanto is a drug dealer and lousy, deadbeat father. He attempts to get out of his drug-dabbling habits but he continually falls back into old habits and those habits get worse as Kanto’s father resurfaces as he attempts to get a settlement after being a victim in a child trafficking scandal. 



Where do I begin with what’s wrong with this movie? For starters, it does nothing to change or evolve the drug movies that are based around a country in Europe. I haven’t seen something as derivative or predictable as this cliche-riddled drama and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad thing. 

I will say that the actors do give it their best shot with the material that they are given, which is already a hard task to achieve. It’s not the actors’ faults and they are pretty good at what they do, but they could have been better. 

Much of the film starts and ends with a bunch of loud, arrogant, foul-mouthed junkies being and doing what foul-mouthed junkies do without any meaningful exposition taking place. 

All in all, this is a film that offered no decent character arcs, whines and moans at its own insufferable content and was mostly just a waste of time.
