Ambitious and beguiling.

dares, from the unlikely vantage of Britain's criminal underworld, to look heavenwards - and, in its darkly pessimistic way, to see nothing there.

As painfully hypnotic as watching a religious zealot ranting in the street and carrying a banner proclaiming the second coming.

Comes across as an obscure Renaissance play which has been badly modernised.

Not every turn in the story is well judged, but what's more damaging is that the film's general aura is not sufficiently powerful.

The moral of this well-shot but grossly uneven film is obviously that, once you get what you want, you may well find either that you don't want it, or that devastating complications can ensue.

The Italian denim company Meltin' Pot paid for Rankin and Chris Cottam's unendurably pretentious stab at gangland street spirituality. Why?

The direction from Rankin and Chris Cottam is very uncertain; there is lots and lots of shouty acting and a cringeworthy denouement worthy of Viz comic's legendary cockney villain Big Vern.

Bizarre, involving and highly original, this leftfield gangland fable adds up to a strange, surprisingly moving experience.

January 26, 2007 Full Review Source: Film4

A bizarre brew of Brit-grit, magic realism and religious allegory.
