Dead Europe (2012) - Drama

Dead Europe (2012) - BAD MOVIE

   I haven't read the book this is based on, so I can't comment on it's adaptation. 'Dead Europe' explores themes involving death, family secrets, the ghosts of the past shaping the present, the inherent racism and anti-Semitism of Europe, the nature of guilt, and the sins of the father being visited on the son. None of the characters have been fleshed out - a glaring weakness by the writer and the lead, Leslie, delivered a frustratingly one note performance. There is only so many times one can deliver the 'F' word in a performance. Overall, a very disappointing film.
