Storyline

An improvised comedy, shot over five days by Shane Meadows, devised with and starring Paddy Considine. Rock roadie and failed musician, Le Donk has lived, loved and learned. Along the way he's lost a girlfriend but he has found a new sidekick in up-and-coming rap prodigy Scor-zay-zee. With Meadows' fly-on-the-wall crew in tow, Donk sets out to make Scor-zay-zee a star...with a little help from the Arctic Monkeys... This low-budget rockumentary follows Le Donk and Scorz on their journey of a lifetime; it's an unpredictable, irrepressible ode to spontaneous filmmaking - and to a burgeoning UK rap talent Written by Protagonist

Mockumentary Beauty
20 December 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a seriously funny film, for so many different reasons. If you like the dynamics of Meadows and Considine in films such as Dead Mans Shoes and A Room for Romeo Brass then this film will amaze you.

Firstly Considine has a real East Midlands English edge to him when he acts with Meadows, those shifty unpredictable eyes, and that stare that lasts a little bit too long. Naturally he is a scary actor, and so to see him become a goofy, comedic clown is so surprising it takes half the film to convince yourself it's actually him.

The film is improvised and yes they probably shot miles of footage for the 71 minutes used, but my God they looked like they were having a great laugh. Meadows can often be heard pissing himself laughing in the background when Considine throws out some serious offbeat ideas (and words). This in itself made me laugh.

The comedy is funny because it feels quite natural, you spend most of the time laughing at the characters and the anecdotes they spill, more than you do at the situations they are in, which adds something really interesting to the film, it's not a slapstick for the Americans.

The film holds together fairly well, but I didn't really care about that, I just enjoyed laughing out loud to it. I would recommend though watching Dead Mans Shoes just before to give you an amazing contrast, and sharpen the experience.

Like I said it's funny, entertaining and if you like any of the actors or meadows in it - it's a must see. I just wished I was there when they shot it.
