Excellent and Disturbing
John R. Bridell | 03/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a thought-provoking and deeply disturbing film that examines the confrontation between weak minds and an uncaring world. Tom McCamus turns in a flawless performance as Henry Adler, the non-entity actor who wins a part in a cop show. At first, he draws strength from his macho cop character, but then - well, I won't say any more. See it for yourself - at least twice. This one is bizarre, but it's worth the trouble. Recommended."
Power tripping
Raegan Butcher | Rain City, USA | 01/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was an excellent film. The central performance by Tom McCamus is very tightly controlled and well-developed. Scenes between him and his father reveal a lot about the character in a very simple yet informative way. With its premise of a mild mannered man suddenly going on a violent power trip,I was expecting something more over-the-top and lurid,something closer to "Taxi Driver" or "God's Lonely Man",but MAN IN UNIFORM is actually under-played and, with the exception of a few scenes involving Kevin Tighe near the end, rather low-key. The character of Henry Adler at first seems like a typical well-behaved nonentity but Tom McCamus, aided by David Wellington's excellent screenplay and direction, invests him with an alientated sense of sadness that I found somewhat touching;I also liked how Henry's mental disintegration progressed.All in all, it makes for a very absorbing viewing experience.
