I'm Not Harry Jenson

A New Zealand-made whodunit following a true-life crime writer (Gareth Reeves - A Song of Good, Insider’s Guide to Love) as he struggles to overcome a writer’s block which threatens to stall his career. Shot in the Waitakere Ranges.

"Carrying off its low budget with polish and actorly flair, this earnestly lurid digi-thriller makes a bold break from years of TV stardom for writer/director James Napier-Robertson and producer/actor Tom Hern. ‘I know more about killers than they know about themselves,’ boasts Sydney true crime writer Stanley, pen-name Michael White (Reeves), but too much knowledge of his next subject, serial killer Harry Jenson, is weirding Stanley out. His desperate agent suggests joining a tramping party in NZ to clear his head. How could he guess that he's transplanting his troubled client from urban noir into a bloody backwoods whodunit? Cameron Rhodes, Ian Mune and Ilona Rodgers are amongst the familiar faces making distinctive contributions to the cunningly plotted mayhem of terror, suspicion and recrimination." - New Zealand Film Fesival 2009.

The only people on here that seem to 'hate' the film are also the only people who can't seem to spell or use proper grammar...

The young writer-director achieves moments of real tension - the literal revealing of the villain is a scene of some mastery - and it's a more-than-worthwhile local effort that bodes well for its makers' future careers.
