It starts with the suave hero strapped into a lazer beam killing machine, and the bald villain poised to kill him, remote in hand. But Ninian Doff has turned that classic Connery-era Bond scenario on its head for Swedish indie pop band Miike Snow's Genghis Khan.

Suddenly the villain (shall we call him Goldnose?) is foiled from dispatching our hero in a surprising fashion, and to his considerable irritation. Then it turns out that Goldnose's real enemy is not tied up in his underground lair at all.

Having established the premise with production design by Tim Gibson referencing Ken Adam's massive Bond sets, and a lovely look achieved by DoP Patrick Meller shooting on 35mm, Ninian Doff then gleefully dismantles the classic 007 mythology - with song and dance numbers, good performances (Adam Jones is excellent as the villain), and almost sacriligious plot twists. 

Frankly, Bond really did need to finally settle down...
