Christie Malry's Own Double-Entry (Paul Tickell, UK, 2000)

[A] thought-provoking and stylish look at one man’s desperate measures to deal with the world in which he finds himself.
— Empire Magazine

Nick Moran stars as the eponymous Christie Malry, a "simple man" who longs for just two things in life: sex and money. In order to better understand the latter, he takes a job in a London bank where he learns the double-entry bookkeeping system - and sees away of applying it to life in general in order to get revenge on society for its perceived slights. Adapted from experimental author B.S. Johnson's acclaimed cult novel, with a great original soundtrack from Luke Haines, Christie Malry's Own Double-Entry is the grubby British Fight Club which nearly no-one saw at the time - but which, naturally, feels more relevant today than ever.
