At your own risk
Edward Lionheart is a frustrated stage performer, who has grown tired of the criticism he has been receiving by the snobbish critics during the years. When he feels overlooked by the critic’s annual acting award, he sets out a big plan to get revenge on them, in the most theatrical way possible.
This premise must be the dream of every actor, director or artists in other creative fields. I’m sure everyone who gets criticized for their work wouldn’t mind going a few rounds with the faceless critics who tear their work and effort a part, even ridiculing their talents if they find it suitable. Even though I write reviews for this website, I hardly consider myself a critic and even if I was I would still want to keep things respectable towards the filmmakers since I have no doubt in my mind that they are trying their best to do what they want to do with their lives. More power to anyone who has ever made a film, regardless if it is a film I hate or love.
