The film is remarkable for its lack of self-pity, but it makes the experience of "Farming" a merciless one for the audience too.
Farming is a great story ultimately defeated by its own unrelenting boorishness.
Equally powerful and uncomfortable, Farming is a stark reminder of the dangerous lengths that self-loathing can lead to.
Farming has a visceral quality that gives the world depicted a sense of dread and fear, and the topic deserves discussion. But the good work is undone by the over-egged performances and the equation of aggression with emotion.
Although "Farming" is set at a particular cultural moment in British history as the punk rebellion was on the horizon, it nonetheless comes off as startlingly contemporary in illustrating how hate can become an identity all its own.
As anyone who sits through this misguided film will subject themselves to a litany of disgusting racist and sadistic incidents.
It's a hell of a story, but left me feeling that Akinnuoye-Agbaje - who also appears as his own father, and performs roughly half of the songs on the soundtrack - was perhaps too close to the subject to tell it with the clarity it demands.
Told with raw emotion and lurid violence, it transforms elements of his life story into a disturbing, eye-opening coming of age drama.
