Disconnected, fragmentary and not really very engaging
A very odd film this - is it about the club scene or a boxing match. The decaying urban setting is quite apt for this group of semi-estranged characters. There is an unreal atmosphere about the whole film which makes it just about watchable, just the thing to watch on Channel 4 at 12:30am on Sunday/Monday. But there were immense problems with continuity, how did Lola end up in this warehouse party in the first place. She didn't know about it when she was on the bus at the start, what was she doing - just going on the bus for no particular reason. None of the characters were particularly engaging and I did not have much idea where the plot was going. However, a big thumbs up for the soundtrack particularly the soaring orchestral Clubbed to Death track, one of MoWax's greatest ever releases. Overall 4.5-5/10
