“Jack Off” is a portrait of urban dweller Jack, and follows his daily life in a loose structure that spans what could be a week, a month, a year. Directed by Max Doyle, Jack Off stars a cast of non-actors and Sydney musicians, with a wonderfully naturalistic performance by photographer and musician Jack Mannix. The film captures the monotony of life for struggling musicians; a series of continuous and unexciting events occur one after another, and a regular gig at a divey club is all that seems to anchor life for these despondent characters.
