I went to the premiere of this film after seeing it marketed on TV by its director Mark Donne and its principal figure Father William Taylor. The film deals with the really topical issue of tax evasion and the role of the City, and ought to have been interesting. While there were moments that capture the dark side of the City the arguments were confused and repetitive. I found the focus of the story about Taylor's ambitions to get himself elected as a councillor and I didn't find such a self-centered character too appealing. The film does a good job of making you feel uncomfortable and angry about the City, and a list of talking heads present the case. But I wasn't inclined to be sympathetic to the main figure of the story either, and found some of the verbalizing half-baked. But nice images of London.
