Crippled by his writer's block, Paul enters into a new, exciting relationship with risk-taking Billy and super-sexy Juliette. As it becomes increasingly tangled, however, he must choose one of them over the other.
1 Day follows 24 hours in the life of Flash, an inner-city hustler who's day steadily gets worse when he finds out local gang leader Angel is being released from prison and wants his £500k he left with him for safekeeping.
An impressive film but a strange operatic experience
A strong, location filmed movie of Adams' controversial opera. The American/British cast act with commendable moderation given that they are all stage animals (the tendency is to be over demonstrative on stage, but that doesn't transfer here).
Chief amongst that cast is a gripping layered performance from Thomas Randle, really doing justice to his character. The other principals work hard under the odd circumstances - one always has to suspend belief watching such a 'staging' that the cast are miming to a pre-recorded soundtrack. Ultimately I find this letter process hard and, allied to my lukewarm feeling for the music I'm left with a sense of admiration rather than engagement. 5/10
