The Man Who Met Himself

The Man Who Met Himself


Reviewed by: Amber Wilkinson

There's a mysterious phone call, overlaying photographic images and those of a man seeking the truth.

Stephen Maker committed suicide in 1999. Or did he? A private detective isn't so sure.

The Man Who Met Himself is big on style. Director/co-writer Ben Crowe is keen to keep his audience guessing and the sliced together stills and footage overlain by the evocative phone conversation make for interesting viewing.

This is more of an atmospheric piece than one that let's you get a handle on the plot. Crowe certainly dishes out mood in spades.

Give the man a cop drama to direct - immediately.
