First off, I am a big fan of Paddy Consadine – I like him in every role I have seen and just caught PU-239 (alternatively titled The Half Life of Timofey Berezin.)

As usual Consadine did a tremendous job – the film however, was a bit on the depressing side.  I know there’s no easy or upbeat way to tell this story, but he does such a good job of making you feel his pain, that you just find yourself wishing something will turn out right for him.

Don’t get me wrong – there are some pretty funny moments.  The back and forth between a trio of small time thugs (Jason FlemyngOscar Isaac, and some dude I can’t remember) is funny as hell.   The funniest was the one whose name I can’t find – haha.

In any event, if you get a chance, it is worth the watch.

RATING 9 out of 10
