Way ahead of Lock Stock

Mate of mine had a DVD of this film. It's dark, funny, surreal. And unlike many British films, it looks gorgeous. What a great film. It's the journey into darkness as lived by Tone (the main bloke) and his two mates. And what a bloody journey it is! Director J.K. (?) Amalou mixes tones and styles effortlessly and keeps up the suspense throughout: just what's going to happen to Tone and his mates?

Loved the dark and dry humour too. Best line? When Tone's mates are told that they've got to kill Tone and bring Tone's hand to their boss (played by scary Mad Frankie Fraser) at 9 o'clock in the morning. Speed's response? "9 o'clock?! It's a bit early, innit?" Brilliant!

Guy Ritchie totally ripped it off. I spotted many similarities. It's a crime it's never been distributed properly.

Can't wait to see J.K. Amalou's next film MAN WHO WOULD BE QUEEN. Wicked title, that.
