Consensus: Though its bleak themes may be off-putting for some, Simon Killer is an engrossing, effective character study of a brutal, enigmatic figure.

The kind of film we'll look back on more fondly after everybody involved has moved on to bigger and better things.

Not for everyone, in fact generally disrecommended for anyone except those who admired Martha Marcy May Marlene.

'Simon Killer'. A wonderful character study into a deeply-disturbed individual. Writing, acting, directing, soundtrack. Tick.
