Panic review – spiky East End shadowlands thriller

17 November 2016 1:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sean Spencer’s debut, about a journalist who sees something he shouldn’t in the tower block opposite, piles on sodium-flooded dread with a script that kicks

It’s great to see a role for a black Londoner that doesn’t involve repping any endz, and David Gyasi (Cloud Atlas, Interstellar) capably anchors this piece of East End noir, playing a traumatised music journalist who gets a Rear Window-style peek of a kidnapping in the tower block across the way. A little under-plotted in its dip into the immigrant-labour demimonde explored most comprehensively by Stephen Frears’s Dirty Pretty Things in 2002, Sean Spencer’s debut feature is still carried off with sharp-eyed poise. Carl Burke’s cinematography thrives in this sodium-flooded twilight world; Spencer not only shows an aptitude for staging violence with everyday household items, but more importantly writes coiled, guarded dialogue that mordantly funnels his characters down dead ends of the soul. »

Film Review: Panic

17 November 2016 1:30 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ In a city of millions, it isn't right but it's easy to turn a blind eye to the suffering of others. Lost in an ocean of lives lived from 9 to 5, spent peering into mobile phone screens, behind closed doors or simply through a blinkered field of vision, a lot goes unseen, unnoticed and unresolved. It's in this world - and more specifically a Tottenham housing estate - that writer-director Sean Spencer sets Panic, his impressive debut feature. A very human crime drama that tackles the brutality of people smuggling and champions the plight of those powerless to escape its grip, Spencer's film further resonates within the claustrophobic psychological confines of its protagonist's mind and body.
