a crossover movie,
This review is from: Shank [DVD]   (DVD)
Its very difficult to find a film that doesn't glamourise or look down upon youth culture today. It saddens me that audiences today are all too quick to criticise anyone who makes the effort to address this shortfall.
I was given this film by a gay friend and me and my girlfriend watched it one evening recently and I was amazed at it's honesty and truthfulness in tackling the feral culture that blights my generation in the media. I live in Bristol where the film was made. I am an undergraduate film maker and this film gave me hope to continue with my aspirations and to make films with a unique voice.
I can see through the shortcomings of budget and casting and recognise a film that is saying something that will stand as a testament and record to a time when 'youth' were violent and intolerant towards each other.
This film is a wonderful explosion of emotion and reality. I greatly admire it. From the first shot to the last we were totally engaged.
