Excellent film - a must watch
1 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having just purchased David is Dying on DVD, I was compelled to write this review. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the film. Excellent story line, with unexpected twists combined with interesting and well thought out dialogue. I was taken on an emotional, spiritual, dark and exhilarating journey, which kept me glued to my seat. Superb art decor, the colours and furnishing have a artistic flare, beautifully complimenting the style of the film.

The main actors acted their parts well, especially the main character- David. I understood his hurt, passion and anger. I enjoyed going back to his childhood and understanding why he did the things he did.

Overall David is Dying is a excellent film. The story, acting, shots, editing and art décor gives this film a certain quality that I haven't seen in a long time. It's not your typical London base urban film that I am use to seeing. This film is on another level, full of surprises and is unpredictable. A great watch.

I Like Mr Jacksons work, and can't wait to see his next film.
