I'm beginning to wake up in cold sweats as I strain to think of somewhere unique, untouched by other parents, that our budget will accommodate and won't mind catering for a herd of psychopathically
solipsistic, snot-dribbling, ketchup-trailing savages in ear-splitting stampede mode.
Diane (Marley Shelton) is almost psychopathically
upbeat, endlessly repeating feel-good truisms.
On the one hand, we have the psychopathically
careless corporations and, on the other, a Little Englander mentality that has not yet got used to not having an Empire to loot for cheap raw materials, commodities and labour, and resents having to go along with French and German concerns.
From its punchy main title, pic inhabits totally different territory, as it zooms in on weirdo Thomas Waller (Florian Lukas), a sallow, hollow-eyed loner who psychopathically
follows around his neighbor, Romanian prostie Wanda (Oana Solomon), with a digital camera.
So imagine my dismay as the main Indian villain of The Missing turns out to be this hideous ogre who is so gothically revolting and so psychopathically
amoral that he seems little more than a cardboard cut-out bogey man.
