The Ugly

Film (Trailer and Excerpts) – 1997

R18
Restricted
With its complex flashback structure and anti-naturalistic colour scheme, the film forces us to inhabit The Ugly's half-remembered, half-hallucinated world and to share in his shrink's increasing sense of disorientation.
– Nigel Floyd, writing in Time Out
The Ugly is a small movie and all the better for it: tight, compressed and with a singularity of purpose. At its best, it is claustrophobic and genuinely creepy, with strokes of classic Kiwi Gothic in its flashbacks...and boldly stylised in its present.
– Philip Matthews, in The Listener
