1.0 out of 5 stars Tumble, down, 1 Sep 2013
Somewhere in this agonising train-wreck of a movie there's an interesting idea. But it's explored with such plodding, wooden ineptitude that its impact is rendered impotent.

Tumbledown is 80 minutes long, but it feels much, much longer. I found myself fastforwarding swathes of material where nothing was happening. The acting is stilted, the plot barely moves, and the direction is self-indulgent. There's nothing to redeem this joyless shambles - it's virtually unwatchable.

If you bred Kidulthood with Crash, you'd start to get something like Bashment, although Bashment amounts to much more than either. It's a beautiful mission statement advocating harmony, and an ugly indictment of the divisions - racial, sexual and everything in between - we've got.

But it's not it's not a boring preachy lecture about how we should all just get along either. Bashment's packed with laughter and tears, plenty of eye candy (of all flavours), and pure talent. Director Rikki Beadle-Blair really knows how to get the best from his actors.

Thoughtful, shocking, moving, funny and sexy, it's the best thing you'll see this year and, just maybe, this decade.

It's been a long time since John R. Gordon's last novel, Warriors & Outlaws. Is "Faggamuffin" worth the wait?

Here's a clue: Rikki Beadle-Blair ("Metrosexuality", "FIT", "KickOff") loved the manuscript so much he put it on the stage in London - long before the novel was even published.

"Faggamuffin" joins John R. Gordon's previous works - "Black Butterflies", "Skin Deep", and "Warriors & Outlaws" - as the definitive account of what it means to be black and gay. But here's the really important thing about "Faggamuffin": it's a gripping page-turner. Set aside its impressive literary credentials - the searing, undeniable truth-telling, the 'message' - and you've got an… Read more
