Synopsis

Already the subject of much advance interest for providing the first 'serious' role for comedian Eddie Izzard. The Criminal is an accomplished debut feature, part London neo-noir and part conspiracy thriller. After a night spend trying to impress a beautiful woman in his local bar, Jasper is pleasantly surprised when she agrees to go back to his place. What he has not foreseen is that his apparent good fortune will plunge him into a nightmare world of murder, extortion and corruption. As an intricate web of deception and fear wraps ever more tightly around Jasper, the complexity of what he has stumbled into becames terrifyingly clear.
