surprisingly warm and good. highlights: shifty and chris playing the skate park ride, the talk after shifty and chris ran from the police, "you bring drugs into my house?! the house that i pray in?!", "as if i'm not gonna come with you you nutter", shifty and chris sitting before the front window in the dark waiting.
I didin't mind this film but the story was very typical of the genre. I guess what made it different was the fact that Riz Ahmed was the lead and a film like this would be typically anchored by a white actor. The film was well acted and hit the beats it needed to but the cultural dynamic at play here was glanced over in my opinion.
