10 Films With My Dad (Aidan Goatley / PBH Free Fringe)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

Growing up, Aidan Goatley bonded with his father over a shared love of film, and here he spends an hour reliving this relationship to a packed house. This is more than just a review of his favourite films – Goatley is a very good storyteller, mixing humour and sentiment smoothly for most of this show. Whilst no part of the performance was especially remarkable, and it occasionally bordered on twee, the show was an enjoyable examination of how relationships work, develop and affect our lives. His views on film were also interesting: some analysis of the homoerotic nature of ‘Die Hard’ and an altered version of ‘Jaws’ went down especially well with audience, even
if it wasn’t really silver screen material.

The Voodoo Rooms, until 25 Aug, 2.25pm.
