An unscripted C4 drama/documentary directed by Dan Reed, set in Liverpool UK. Depicting the lives of 'gang' members involved in drugs and crime in Liverpool : circa 1990/2000. What a film... 'Shooters' caused outrage when it was first broadcast over Christmas 2000 on Channel Fours 'Cutting Edge' series. It has since become 'The cult Brit gangster film'.
Dan Reeds attempt to illustrate the background behind 'David Ungi's' shooting in Liverpool in the mid-90's. Acted out by the 'kidders' in the know.
If you are a fan of the 'gangster genre' of films. This is a must see.
The film is available from HMV and Amazon.
