**Specially imported**

Educated, articulate and mentally unbalanced Johnny (David Thewlis) rapes a woman and flees the law to take up with an ex-girlfriend. Antagonistic towards her and her female flatmate, he delights in verbal and sexual dominance. Johnny is constantly denigrating those around him in the belief that he is the most cultured and intelligent person in the room and possibly the world, until he finds himself on the receiving end of some equally disdainful physical violence. A confrontational and ambiguous film: the post-Thatcher underclass is represented by a character more distasteful and destructive than the government it seeks to critique.
