Although the unforgettable feel of the film could be attributed to its verit tyle (filmed on the dodgy side of London with very rough-looking film), it could be better attributed to the protagonist himself.

I would probably think even more highly of the film if the bastard character of Jeremy (Greg Crutwell) were better-explained or perhaps cut entirely out of the film.
It's David Thewlis' film though, he gives Johnny the raw energy and belligerence this flawed Prophet deserves.
