Cutting-edge British music artist Ben Drew (a.k.a. Plan B) makes his directorial debut with this gritty crime drama that uses original music by Plan B to link the lives and stories of eight disparate characters, all struggling to make it on the mean streets of London.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
The visual style was a little heavy handed at times but the use of rap for the flashbacks and backstory of characters was pretty cool. Also, the end got a little to melodramatic for me but the authenticity of the characters that Ben Drew created carried the film as this was a solid first effort on his part.
highly recommend this film to anyone for sound reasons, amazing how well the soundtrack works, visually sickening but the story comes together cleverly. I can see Ben Drew being a director to keep an eye on as i think there is greater stuff yet to come.
En lo temático me encanta como la pelicula inicia y casa termina de la misma forma y se basa en 8 personas y lo que les pasa en 7 dias.En lo cromatico se usan luces rojas y azules tambien escenas en blanco y negro.Y en lo tecnico lo mejor es al principio que las escenas son muy rapidas ,cuenta con planos generales que muestran la ciudad y lo mas importante es la musica porque sirve de narracion en la historia
