DOGMAN (MA15+)

This nerve-shreddingly intense film from the director of Italian gangster classic Gomorrah, is an exceedingly rich illustration of how a good man can be tempted by the lure of evil. Dogman filters an early Scorsese-like low-life gangster sensibility through an effectively stylized, and desolate Italian prism.
Marcello, in an extraordinarily realistic turn from Marcello Fonte, is a dog-groomer by day and a low-level cocaine dealer by night. Simone is a loose cannon – mean, violent and probably insane – yet Marcello feels strangely drawn in by this toxic personality. What is it that attracts Marcello to such a dangerous personality, and has he brought himself too close to the devil?
