The festival kicks off with Nic Roeg's directorial debut, a brimful collection of ideas about power, persuasion and performance ("The only achievement that makes it, makes it all the way is madness") Opening as a gangster thriller, the film juggles visual and verbal imagery and develops into a complex blurring of the divide between reality and fantasy.
