Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer now has a worthy successor. Tony, a dull man with a moustache and biggish glasses, is the perfect target for fights and mocking. What his appearance doesn’t show is that actually murder is his hobby. At home, he kills and cuts up bodies. His discourse is the same as another social outcast’s, Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver: both believe themselves to be soldiers, not criminals. Gerard Johnson’s debut has every probability of becoming a cult film: slow narrative, use of music that transports us to the killer’s mind and excellent interpretation. The world needs to start to tremble, Tony’s here.


Gerard Johnson

He took his first steps as a runner and at a post-production company. He was spotlighted thanks to his short Mug (04). Tony (09), his first feature film, was a big sensation in Sitges.
