I'm Not Harry Jenson


New Zealand 2009, 102 minutes
Dir. James Napier Robertson
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Suspense/Crime / Psycho

Topics: Mind-bender.


Aroview: Tensely conceived, enterprising Kiwi thriller finds a true crime novelist so deeply invested in the violent subject of his latest book, that he begins to expect the death of a tramper in the Waitakere Ranges may be his own doing.

First-time writer-director-editor Robertson delivers a commendably slick and inventive noirish atmosphere on a micro-digi budget, with a game ensemble cast making the most his loopy whodunit premise. Gareth Reeves proves himself leading man material, while Cameron Rhodes and Ian Mune add further touches of acting class. If these qualities do ultimately expose inadequacies in the script, it still stacks up favourably against similar local attempts at the genre.
