Trivia

Directors Ray Burdis and Dominic Anciano prepared a "bible" that detailed all the characters' back stories and motivations. This was sufficiently detailed to eliminate the need for endless rehearsals. Instead, each scene was shot on the first improvisation. New content was then added to each subsequent take to keep the scene fresh and original. See more »

Quotes

Jude: Who was that? What was she doing? Well, I might reveal it... and I might not. I have to keep you on the edge of your seats. You see that's the joy of making a cutting edge film. Real life on celluloid. Stay tuned!

Who are your real friends?
24 March 2017 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

The first fifteen minutes I had my doubts on whether I was going to waste my time or have a good time with this movie. But it quickly increases in a good way so that I was totally absorbed by the story. The story is actually going somewhere even though my first doubts. I even didn't see the end coming, absolutely not, I was totally surprised by it. The story is a simple but effective concept. Hidden cameras that bring the truth about the lives of a bunch of friends. We all know how people are badmouthing others when they are absent and in Final Cut it is shown to them in a sometimes provocative way. There is a lot of cursing, but it fits the movie, because I think I would curse a lot as well if it happened to me. The best performance is from Ray Winstone that plays one of the major roles, as well as Jude Law. The whole cast is perfect for this movie. Not my favorite kind of film shooting but in this case it works perfectly well.
