An enjoyable collection of mostly good short films
25 September 2005 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

A series of short films by different writers that all revolve around taxi drivers working the black cabs in London and their different fares. Lasting for ten episodes of ten minutes each, the subject of each short film is different but mostly they are interesting and well written. Although some of the films get out of the cab, the better ones are the conversations that last the whole ten minutes and stay within the confines of the vehicle; generally these are the stronger films because the whole thing is about the writing and delivery of the people.

At times it doesn't ring true; mainly because it is sometimes hard to buy that these people would always open up to their drivers (or vice versa) but the stronger entries in the series overcome this by virtue of their writing. The direction is generally fairly straightforward and the films look the same – I suppose it is difficult to do much with a short play that is set in a very space limited location. The impressive aspect though is the difficulty of shooting entirely in a small mobile location and making it all come together without any visible problems.

Overall, a mixed series but mainly good short films that are well written and interesting. Perhaps not strong enough t stand up as one 100 minute drama but certainly good enough to be taken in ten minute bites.
