Review of "A HARBOUR TOWN"
by Maximilian Le Cain

"In an article I wrote last year about Dean Kavanagh's films, I called him 'Irish cinema's best kept secret'. His brand new feature film, A Harbour Town,  adds overwhelming urgency to the need to get that 'secret' out there. In this extraordinary, utterly idiosyncratic new masterpiece, Dean has surpassed even the finest of his short films. An uncomfortable, elusive work that gets right under the skin, A Harbour Town blurs the boundaries between banal details of daily life and the weirdness of our unconscious, often tactile perception of them. An unsettling experience to be sure, one that it's very hard not to carry back into 'real life' (a condition this film constantly interrogates) after viewing. This new movie consolidates Dean's status as undoubtedly the most unique and mysterious filmmaker in Ireland. And, to my mind, one of the most fascinating anywhere."
