Ruairí McCann on Hole in the Head

"An unholy marriage between experimental film and the of the finest Irish films in recent years"

"a wonderfully labile rendition of cinematic obsession as a simultaneously profound, absurd, deracinating, and visceral experience."


"Shot by Kavanagh in portrait-like close-ups, emphasising [the characters'] detachment from one another, but also the detail of their performances. Their peculiarities and power games flare up and are effectively established, as well as the film’s more underlying but far-reaching exploration of gender, class, and creative tensions."


Film critic Ruairí McCann reviews Hole in the Head for Ultra Dogme.
