R&A 09: Shifty

1 h 26 min  |  -  |  Release Date: 19.9.2009

Not really a fun night out, but the tightest and most textured drama of South-east lowlife since ”London to Brighton”.

– ANTHONY QUINN, THE INDEPENDENT

As the excellent ”Shifty” proves, films about the poorer parts of modern Britain can be both boldly cinematic and grimly authentic. Riz Ahmed plays Shifty, a low-level drug dealer in a tight spot with his supplier Glen (a menacing Jason Flemyng). Daniel Mays is Chris, his once best friend recently back in London after several years absence. – Mercifully free of Danny Dyer cameos or Guy Ritchie mockneyisms, this works as both an entertaining gangster thriller and a hard-hitting piece of social realism. Absorbing, moving and authentic, ”Shifty” never once strikes a false note.

– ELLEN JONES, TOTAL FILM
