Skeptical Watches: Parked [2011]

Drawn by Colm Meaney’s face on the film’s poster, I went into this film blind, not knowing what to expect except- hey, it’s Chief O’Brien!

Written by Ciaran Creagh, and directed by Darragh Byrne, this relatively unknown little film from 2011 is your classic unlikely-friendship-leading-to-self-discovery-and-personal-growth story, centered around the middle-aged Fred and the dope-smoking 21-year-old Cathal, two homeless people living in their cars, in a carpark, by a beach, in Ireland.

If you are looking for a small, personal tale with funny accents, you can’t go wrong with this film.  Though the plot is perhaps somewhat cliché, it does have a rather charming premise, backed I must add, by solid performances from its two amazing leads, including- hey, it’s Chief O’Brien!

I spend all of my non-work time pretty much on games, movies, and listening to music and podcasts. Gadget lover and gamer - own several major consoles, but mainly play MMOs on the PC nowadays. I am quiet & shy but hell of a nice guy. Consider my childhood days to be the golden age of gaming, with companies like Origin with their Ultimas and Privateers. For me MMOs are all about the people, and not about gear or loot. View all posts by BC_Animus
