A likkle piece of this and likkle piece of that


British Cinema has made a concerted effort in the last two decades to document themes such as poverty, gang culture and vice which are all synonymous with the concrete jungle. Features about the monarchy, grannies getting stark naked for charity and posh birds playing themselves in ill-advised remakes are some of the drivel which the aesthetically passive are enthused by. However, amidst the jumble there are a few that juxtapose ‘Get Rich Quick’ scheming and prevalence of  H. M.P (KidAdulthood) alongside comic capers that sufficiently ridicule the incompetence which hardened gangsters are not exempt. (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels)

The Noughties have deceased and a recent release simply titled ‘Terry’ sees a student film the aforementioned young geezer for a university project as he trawls through the abyss of the Big Smoke. The eighty minutes are firmly wrapped in potent vernacularism, a Charlie – which the angels would disapprove of and headtopping hostility with pool sticks. A trembling handheld camera contributes to a coarse adventure and while the film has been shelved next to the cinematography of Love and Clarke. It has particular traits which go beyond cliches towards the end and are a testament to the potential of debut director Nick Nevern. Watch out for Billy Black who is a figure that most people know of in reality. (the polar opposite of Carlton Banks one might say)

TERRY is out now on DVD. Purchase via HMV or Amazon.
