“Nose to Tail is Superbly Acted” – Alvin Wai Chung Tsang
Guest blogger Alvin Wai Chung Tsang is a horror movie lover from Barrhaven who goes to the theatre every weekend to see new releases. He takes bets on box office predictions and hopes to win big someday. He reviewed Jesse Zigelstein’s feature film Nose to Tail, screening at the Ottawa Canadian Film Festival on November 2, 2019. Here is review.
Daniel (Aaron Abrams) is an isolated professional chef who doesn’t struggle to balance his work, family and love life but fails entirely at it. Is it substance abuse? Crippling debt? A messy divorce? It is the curiosity of what is wrong with him that drives the film forward.
Abrams’ performance is mesmerising. He is constantly denied what he wants, then acts out and causes a new problem for himself and his struggling restaurant. The amalgamation of all his issues into one important night for the restaurant is ugly, exciting and quite masterful. Nose to Tail is a joy to watch.
Can’t argue with this short but sweet take calling @MrAaronAbrams “mesmerising” and our movie “a joy to watch”! We’re playing @ocanfilmfest on Saturday night. Check it out, Ottawa. https://t.co/DuOa9KTuRR
