There are a fair number of things to admire about FLASHBACKS OF A FOOL, although I must say right here and now that the title is NOT one of them! I cannot believe that anyone thought this would make an enticing title in any way, shape or form.     It tells the story of Joe Scot (Daniel Craig), a very successful film star who has fallen into a life of decadence, drug-use and debauchery.

Actor Joe Scott has everything he ever wanted: fame, fortune, Malibu mansion.

It's not a feel good film, but it is a story about opportunities to …

Films of reflection are too few and often they resort to tales of climbing to a summit only to gaze back at the shadows never cast in the greedy race for the top and end in tragedy. FLASHBACKS OF A FOOL suggests, by its title, that the story may be different, that there may be some redemption at the core of an abusive life.    Writer/director Baillie Walsh sets his story in opening frames of intense sexual, drug accompanied debauchery. But as the credits fade, the lead character …
