The film opens with the cast gathering after the funeral of Jude to see a film he had been working on for two years. It turns out that the film is secret videos of all those gathered together in their most despicable moments including thievery, spousal abuse, adultery, etc. The revelations remove the masks from the so-called close friends.

Directors Ray Burdis and 'Dominic Anciano' prepared a "bible" that detailed all the characters' back stories and motivations. This was sufficiently detailed to eliminate the need for endless rehearsals. Instead, each scene was shot on the first improvisation. New content was then added to each subsequent take to keep the scene fresh and original. See more »

I hadn't heard of this film and hired it with low expectations. It was with delight, therefore, that I found myself totally absorbed by this unusual and gripping story. The male actors, especially Jude Law were superb. The character of Ray (Ray Winstone) with his barely suppressed violent nature was one of the best seen on film for some time. I found the female actors to be below average, but good direction made them almost plausible. My idea of a good film is one which sits in my subconscious for some time after viewing. I woke up this morning still processing it in my mind and I think it will be there for some time yet.
