Nobody: Directed by Rob Perez. With Sam Rosen, Mark Margolis, Helena Mattsson, Beth Riesgraf. Lindeman, 25-year-old art student, struggles to find his inspiration, finding himself in one ridiculous situation after the other.

“A kind of depending-upon-perspective RASHOMON of the rebellious teen set has a gang of four young Brits accused of murder; yet THE BOYS is more a street-set thriller than courtroom drama with creative director Sidney J. Furie unveiling a mystery where only the four suspects know the exact truth, leading to an inevitable twist thatu0026#39;s worth the otherwise overlong wait…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHeaded by the memorably offbeat Dudley Sutton as the groupu0026#39;s shifty instigator while real life pop singer Jess Conradu0026#39;s the most sympathetic with nerdy/likeable Ronald Lacey and a tough-sullen Tony Garnett in-between… All morally ambiguous/realistic in nature (60u0026#39;s British cinema was a decade ahead of the US yet inspired by Film Noir)…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMeanwhile side-character character-actors like Roy Kinnear (a frazzled bus driver) are more effective than stiff and preachy prosecutor Richard Todd, himself outshined by resilient defender Robert Morely… yet both are equally burdened with the thankless task of moving the courtroom expository since, other than the English courtu0026#39;s nifty multi-tier aesthetic, whatu0026#39;s being remembered really matters and, considering our sources, canu0026#39;t be entirely trusted: Providing suspenseful anticipation for how things will pan out…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd had THE BOYS not been on trial, just watching them loosely roam the genuine London streets, getting wild kicks in juke joints and poolhalls while striking-out with sexy-sullen Carol White, is all worthwhile.”
