  • Director: Stuart Simpson
  • Starring: Glenn Maynard
  • Kyrie Capri

Cons

Stuart Simpson’s Australian indie feels like a first film, even if it isn’t. Self-consciously straddling lines between comedy, horror and pathos, it centres on a socially awkward ice-cream man (Glenn Maynard) who spends his days parked up on a redneck estate, avoiding the local hardman and obsessively wanking over his favourite soap starlet.

It’s The Station Agent meets Taxi Driver via Napoleon Dynamite, or at least it desperately wants to be, ending up less than the sum of its influences. Still, better a piled-on, multi-flavoured sundae than a boring tub of vanilla.
