Picturehouse Podcast: Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby on Mindhorn

We sat down with Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby to talk about their new film Mindhorn. In cinemas now. 

Director: Sean Foley.
Starring: Julian Barratt, Andrea Riseborough, Essie Davis, Russell Tovey, Simon Farnaby, Harriet Walter, Simon Callow, Steve Coogan. UK 2016. 89 mins.

Written by The Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby, this lovingly detailed and very funny off-the-wall comedy features a heavyweight line-up of talent directed by award-winning theatre director Sean Foley (The Play What I Wrote), making his feature debut.

Julian Barratt plays Richard Thorncroft, a washed-up actor who had an ’80s TV hit as Mindhorn, an Isle Of Man detective with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally ‘see the truth’. Decades later he is offered a shot at redemption when a crazed killer is on the loose and is prepared to negotiate only with Mindhorn.
