Rellik recap: episode two – TV that will only get more warped by the week

With deranged driving, al fresco sex and explosive confessions, the reverse serial killer story looks set to be more disturbing the deeper in (or further back) we get

One side effect of telling a serial killer story backwards is that it can seem like things are getting better, at least in terms of crime statistics. In Rellik’s some-assembly-required opener, disfigured detective Gabriel (Richard Dormer) and his partner Shepard (Jodi Balfour) had seven bodies piled up. Episode two kicks off a whole 16 days earlier, so now – or, more accurately, then – there are only five horrific murders outstanding.

That 16 days might seem rather a large leap, but it does land on another notably tumultuous 24-hour period for poor Gabriel as he crashes around chasing rickety leads while his personal life implodes. Shepard tries a different approach, pulling a sickie to smoke joints, listen to the Style Council and deal with some cryptic family business.

Jawbone review – British boxing drama packs plenty of punch

Johnny Harris is excellent as a fighter struggling to overcome alcoholism in Thomas Napper’s debut as director

The familiar boxing movie trajectory doesn’t lessen the forceful punch of this underdog story. Written by and starring Johnny Harris, this is a strikingly accomplished portrait of a booze-sick broken soul hauling himself back up from rock bottom. It’s a feature debut from a director who has clearly made sure he’s at fighting weight: Thomas Napper honed his skills taking charge of second units for Joe Wright.

There’s a level of technical polish here that elevates this lean little story. Sound design bleeds into a satisfyingly textured score by Paul Weller. The exemplary cinematography by Tat Radcliffe favours the kind of intimacy that lets us see the pain seeping through Jimmy McCabe’s (Harris’s) skin along with the vodka sweats. In the ring, the disorienting duck and

New clip for British boxing drama ‘Jawbone’; In UK cinemas now

Vertigo Releasing have provided The Hollywood News with a brand new clip from Jawbone, their stunning new British boxing drama that arrives in UK cinemas from today, Friday 12th May.

Written by and starring Johnny Harris (London To Brighton, This is England 86,88,90, Monsters: Dark Continent) alongside powerful performances from Ray Winstone, Michael Smiley and Ian McShane, Jawbone is the moving, raw story of one man fighting addiction and a system that has turned its back, and finding a path to redemption though a return to amateur boxing, and the last circle of people who will still believe in him. Utterly authentic, with the cast trained and choreographed extensively by legendary boxing promoters Barry and Shane McGuigan, and shot in a unique stripped-back British-Noir style, Jawbone is accompanied on screen by an atmospheric new score by Paul Weller.

We loved this film and just last night posted our very positive review.

Jawbone review: Dir. Thomas Napper (2017)

Jawbone review: Johnny Harris leads the cast and scripts this ultra-gritty British drama which truly is one of the stand-out British films of the year so far.

Jawbone review by Paul Heath.

If Ken Loach were to make a boxing film, I think it would look a lot like Jawbone. Grounded in gritty reality, the film is fiercely engaging, raw and hard-hitting from the outset.

The story revolves around Johnny Harris’ Jimmy McCabe, a down on his luck, out of work and about-to-homeless south Londoner who returns to the boxing club where he spent his youth to find some kind of solace, and, at the same time pull his life back together. There, he is encounters old mentor, club owner Bill (Ray Winstone) who reluctantly agrees to help him, just so long as he stays on the straight and narrow, and off the booze. Jimmy is almost immediately offered a

First trailer for Boxing drama Jawbone with Ray Winstone & Ian McShane

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Boxing and the movies are no strangers to each other; not too far away on the horizon is Jawbone – which stars Jimmy Harris in its lead and Ray Winstone as a big-hearted boxing gym owner – a British boxing story that may have you feeling a little punch drunk with its gloomy and heartfelt first trailer.

We all know audiences are a bit of a sucker for the storyline of the down and out boxer who makes a passionate fighting comeback against the odds. Our last venture into this world was with Bleed For This starring Miles Teller towards the tail end of last year but nothing can quite live up to the high standards the Rocky spin-off Creed achieved recently. Will Jawbone with its Great British grit and determination pack an almighty punch for lovers of the genre? Time will tell.

10 Rare Cover Songs by Amy Winehouse That Demand Your Attention

10 Rare Cover Songs by Amy Winehouse That Demand Your Attention
When Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 27, popular music lost one of its most talented young voices. She had stunned the world in 2006 with her breakthrough album, Back To Black, which showcased her larger-than-life vocal range and songwriting skills that belayed her tender years. By the end of her life Winehouse had become infamous for her personal problems and drug-fueled exploits, but her music will endure long after the tabloid headlines are forgotten. While most of her songs are autobiographical, featuring lyrics brimming with equal parts wit and vulnerability, she wasn't afraid to add her own unique twist to familiar tunes.
