★★★★

After seeing his girlfriend (Watkins) killed in a robbery, 'The Man' (Webber) loses his grip on reality and begins a vigilante crusade to clean up society.

Following his escape from a mental hospital, he witnesses psychotic drug dealer Tom (Allder) kill in cold blood, and begins stalking him. Relating the plot of The Late Twentieth is a cringe-inducing experience, but watching the film is a feat of almost superhuman endurance.

Despite a 1 million budget, this film is amateurish in the extreme: the no-name cast are without charisma and acting ability; the script is messy and horribly pretentious; the photography and editing are awful. Director-writer-producer-editor Hadi Hajaig is trying to comment on the decline of society, but instead shows just how dire a state British low-budget filmmaking is in.
