Gritty drama does not get much better
Wow. I would have loved to have watched this on the big screen but it came out just as lockdown was taking hold. This is not a film for the faint hearted. Cosmo Jarvis plays Arm, an ex boxer who, having lost his vacation, has hooked up with a gangster type family to be their 'hatchet man'. Violence is all he's ever known. But he's not an evil man, and the methods of his bosses don't sit well with him. But he gets on with it - until he's asked to do a job too far, that has repurcussions for everyone. An absolute gem of a film. Dark. Tense. Gritty. And yet with hope. Bravo
