Cert: 15 Year: 2005 Length: 89 mins
Ex-offender Ricky (rapper Ashley Walters in an outstanding debut) has barely re-entered the volatile environment of his East London council estate when he is reluctantly sucked into a vicious circle of petty rows, threats, gun violence and recrimination. The catalyst being. . . a broken wing mirror. Such mundane realism defines this feature debut of documentary maker Dibb, who has rejected the usual flashy and clichéd trappings of the genre to tell a tragic story of how a family is destroyed when guns enter their otherwise unexceptional lives.
Dibb has produced a work of superior, committed and responsible storytelling.
