Afro Saxons (2008)




Critic Consensus: An affable hairdressing documentary that means well but doesn't really reach for any great heights; just like a hairdresser's chitchat.

It's an unpolished and slightly chaotic film that whisks the viewer breathlessly from salon to salon, without stopping to get to know any of the key characters in real depth.

But it's good to see a vision of modern-day urban life free of grimy, gun-slinging clichés.
