You all know what it’s like. You’re sitting in the cinema or watching a film at home and you see someone you recognise on screen. Turning to the person next to you, you ask: “who is that guy? He’s in that thing, you know, that other movie…WHAT IS HIS NAME? TELL MEEEEE!!!” Eventually you then find out who he is…and have forgotten by the next day. Well, we here at Best For Film are like elephants and we could never, EVER forget a great actor. Except from what’s his name…Oh you know, that guy who is in that other thing? Never mind…
“Mononymous?” we hear you cry, “What the deuce does that mean?” Don’t worry. Let us explain.

Giving a romantic charm to a story of master criminal versus determined cop that Michael Mann would be proud of, it follows the plight of bank-robber Doug MacRay. Desperate to get out, but hopelessly locked in, will Doug get the girl like Will Hunting, or bite the dust like John Dillinger? Most importantly, will he ever get to leave The Town?
