Locus of Control is a clever and insightful dark comedy that centres on Andrew Egan, a struggling stand-up comedian.
A Kafkaesque tale of ego and insecurity where Andrew is stuck repeating the same pattern of mistakes over and over.
This is a bright and intriguing debut feature, from an exciting filmmaker who seamlessly blends a nightmare landscape with contemporary issues. Brooding dreams are dashed to make way for tomorrow.
