Simon Pearce's Shank successfully treads the line between sweet romance, gay soft-core porn, gang violence, and aimless exploitation.

'Shank' has a lot more to say than the average no-budget gangland exposé, resulting in a film which, for all its clichés, feels surprisingly real.

Shadows on the Wall

Locally produced in Bristol with an up-and-coming cast and crew, this drama is remarkably tough, constantly challenging our preconceptions. It also transcends its budget to create interesting characters and some truly harrowing situations.

The raw power of the story isn't always very effectively harnessed but the level of conviction is certainly impressive.

A well-meaning but not always convincing attempt to hoodie-ise the gay coming-of-age drama.
