Storyline

Johnny Flynton is good at one thing: boxing. He's not too bright, and there's clearly some issues in his past, but what's worse, when he's boxing, his temper flares up. His wife, Samantha, tells him she's pregnant. Meanwhile, he's got an exhibition match with local boy Artie Duane. Johnny lets him get a few punches in to look good, but when Artie starts taking cheap shots, Johnny can't stand by and overreacts. He runs home, where he's in high spirits, but that proves his downfall. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Powerful film
13 July 2003 | by dg440See all my reviews

I first saw JOHNNY FLYNTON at the LA Short Film Festival at Arclight

last summer. I was impressed then. Recently I rewatched it on DVD... the

direction, the performances, the cinematography, the writing, the

music... every element is as good or better than any commercial

full-length film I've seen in a long time. Riveting. If you get the chance to see it, you won't be disappointed.
