Trashbat messiah: Nathan Barley

"it's well weapon"
Chris Morris is a genius, a sick and disturbed one maybe, but watching his latest creation Nathan Barley (26, a webmaster, guerrilla filmmaker, screenwriter, DJ and in his own words, a "self-facilitating media node") on a Friday evening is an absolute blast...
Barley is convinced he is the epitome of urban cool and therefore secretly terrified he might not be, which is why he reads Sugar Ape Magazine - his bible of cool. Dan Ashcroft writes searing columns for Sugar Ape. He's considered astonishingly cool, but only by those he despises. He is surrounded by idiots and practically worshipped by Nathan (whom he considers to be their king). He is 34. Why has he failed to move on? Claire Ashcroft, 27, is Dan's sister. Like Dan she despises "cool". She hasn't met Nathan yet, but like him she is a film-maker. Unlike him she despises novelty, trash, irony and gadgets. She is furious that no one will fund her hard-hitting documentary about a choir of reformed junkies.
If you like your comedy at the cutting edge - there is no substitute, keep it foolish, yeah?

"Totally mexico"
