David Knight - 2nd May 2008

A truly amazing, stunning, and relentlessly terrifying video from Romain Gavras.

Does it glorify violence Well, did Clockwork Orange, La Haine, Man Bites Dog This deserves comparison with all those seminal films - it's that good.

It certainly raises very interesting and serious questions (some of which are addressed here).

But of course all we really want to know is - how did they do it Romain Gavras's documentary style is so damn verité one has to wonder: did people really get bashed

Now that, frankly, would be rather morally questionable. But, really, this is brilliant, brilliant filmmaking.
