Tony (2005) - Gerard Johnson

This is the short film that writer/director Johnson would turn into his memorable debut feature four years later. It's like a ten minute calling card, or maybe more accurately a demo for a song. Pretty much everything in the film such as actors, music and plot would end up in said feature. Like all of Johnson's films the music is by big brother Matt Johnson of The The fame, and sounds very nice thank you very much. It's hard for me to judge this having seen and loved the full length version, in that the characters and locations look more dirty, and everything has a creepier feel to it. So with that in mind I'd say that this is only really worth watching as a curio if you've already seen the feature length version of Tony.
