The review is by editor of the week, Rob Munday, at shortoftheweek.com. Supported by the Kevin Spacey Foundation and based on Etgar Keret’s story Healthy Start, A New Man is a short firmly focused on narrative and performance. This is the tale of an ordinary man, in an ordinary setting, looking to spice up his mundane existence – again, something many of us will have thought about at some point in our life. At the end of Thompson’s tale, as we’re left staring at Charles blood-splattered smile, we’re left pondering not only what will happen next for his protagonist, but also that maybe it takes the most painful moments to rediscover a lust for life.
