Better Days, certainly worth a watch if you can get hold of a copy.
25 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

Better Days premiered in Exeter, Devon, receiving critical acclaim in the national press (Total Film magazine, issue 26).

Five friends decide to take out insurance policies on each other and draw straws to see who will commit suicide for the benefit of the others. There's more to this film than first meets the eye, shot on a shoe-string budget Better Days has hedge-hopping helicopter rides, exploding cars, international locations and a was the debut film of a talented crew, most of whom progressed quickly through the ranks of the film industry.

Better Days was one of the pioneering feature films of the digital format, perhaps even the first. It's a good and entertaining watch if you can find a copy.
