critical reviews

"Couldn't be more direct or less obscure... with virtually every speech and scene ringing painfully, bitterly true."

"That was over twenty years ago. I never got back—never will now. It's like Terry says: I'm just another English Paddy."

The Tradition

a screenplay

Plot Summary:

Gordon Amos, writer of both Dickensian novels and sadomasochistic pornography, has been dead for over a century, but hasn't been forgotten. Every year, on the anniversary of his death, a mysterious woman known only as The Tradition has visited his grave. But this year, an ambitious out-of-town reporter has decided to expose The Tradition, little imagining the horrific consequences. Now two detectives are left to clean up the mess and stop a wave of gruesome murders.
