May I Kill U? Reviews
The use of what I imagined to be footage from the 2011 London riots was cleverly interwoven into the film to portray a London of petty crooks and bored coppers. The interesting twist by use of the flipped roles of 'Baz' the bicycle cop and a tattooed and lazily-bearded offender, in what seems to be an interview room, provides a dramatic and humorous opening as the events that led up to the moment unwind before us.
With his poisonous, ciggy-puffing mother judging his every move and decision, we have the fascinating contrast of Baz' comic work life, in which I felt very comfortable viewing, and his home, which was cleverly filmed to highlight Baz' discomfort and feeling of sickness at his mother's presence and attitude, which resounds in the audience.
With appropriate twists and turns throughout, this is one of those films that guarantees a laugh and an interesting pry into the lives of those who seem to be totally normal people.
This witty english comedy has collected laughter among the audiences and reluctance among the critics.
Extremely contemporary, this film may fail to pass the test of time, but for the time that has been running has delighted viewers with his dark humour and satirical style that has been characteristic of decades of english storytelling.
This eccentric mesh, all topped with the brilliant performance of Kevin Bishop, foresees the actor's career break toward comedy, proving success in both sides of the lake after his role in Super Fun Night.
However, the film doesn't seem to have fulfilled the american critic scene's expectations. From my point of view, with punch lines like 'Does anyone else here speak English and have been raped?', the scene can be presented a bit raw to swallow for american audiences. Nevertheless, is the incongruence and boldness of these dialogues what makes the characters in this film crazy and unique, and builds the dark charm of british comedy.
Definitely a must see this summer.
A black comedy which I thought worked OK.
