  1. crnstsc's rating of the film The Butcher Boy

  2. Waxamillion's rating of the film The Butcher Boy

    A haunting movie about a boy growing up and his life moving on faster than he can keep up with. Great adaptation of Patrick McCabe's book. I cant pick which I prefer, the book or the film. Eamonn Owens is outstanding as Francie Brady. It was hard to swallow the first time, but I ended up loving this movie so much.

  3. Cashew's rating of the film The Butcher Boy

    I reeeeeally wanted to like this, but I found it too disturbing to even finish.

  4. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film The Butcher Boy

    Uh, recuperato finalmente. E devo solo dire "wow".

  5. Diderot's rating of the film The Butcher Boy

    What are you doing, Father? You're worse than the Nugents! -- Eamonn Owens gives a remarkable performance, making this obnoxious and ultimately terrifying character very sympathetic and sweet.

  6. T.J. Royal's rating of the film The Butcher Boy

    Most definitely an uneven experience. It was a lot more enjoyable in the second half, when it became a lot more clear that the boy's actions are being played for laughs.

  7. Raymer's rating of the film The Butcher Boy

    Surprisingly upbeat for an apocalyptic anti-coming-of-age movie. Interesting, but (deliberately?) uneven.
