Stylish short film from the Portishead crew.
9 November 2001 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

The band Portishead are heavily influenced by the Spy films of the sixties & the soundtracks of such composers as Lalo Schifrin & John Barry. Their trip hop music conjures up images akin to movies such as The Ipcress file. Here they take their love of this genre further with a short B&W film starring themselves & with a very cool soundtrack. It begins with a rooftop assassination & centres on the reaction to it & understanding of it by a woman who was with the victim. But who was the victim? Is he dead? Who ordered the hit? This short film twists & turns in on itself all in the space of 10 minutes. This is obviously a must for all Portishead fans but many lovers of sharp spy movies of the sixties & those familiar with the work of the above mentioned film composers will find this intriguing. Hopefully the band will one day be given a full length feature to score on the merits of this short film.
