Donkey Punch

In The Evening Standard 15/07/08, director of Donkey Punch, Olly Blackburn is quoted as saying: 'It is meant to be a provocative film, to deal with things you wouldn't talk about at a dinner party.' Mr Blackburn ought to be careful what he says. His Dad is a property lawyer and his Mum is an art curator. So Mr Blackburn is a middle Englander who goes to dinner parties with people he doesn't feel comfortable being himself with? Well, all this repression has driven him to make 'Donkey Punch'. It's described as being pretty nasty with unlikable characters. I wonder if it's going to live up to all the hype, or is Mr Blackburn going to turn out to be just another posh boy trying to be edgy and controversial?

And who goes to Dinner Parties? What is a Dinner Party? Tut.
