Shifty (Eran Creevy, 2009)


After much mentions in class by our teacher I decided to go on watch “Shifty” as I went on to see the film I noticed that it was not so much of a story in a traditional sense, more of a day in the life of type of tale and in this case it’s through a drug dealer’s eyes. Whilst this is true in terms of the storyline, perhaps the true underlying meaning of the film is about relationships of all kind, family & friendships etc. I loved the “British-ness” about the film with great performances from Riz Ahmed and Nitin Ganatra who played brothers, there’s a scene where I thought “this is typical England” when both brothers started arguing in their native language which I thought was brilliant.
