4.0 out of 5 stars Le Donk and Scor-Say-Zee: worthwhile and generally successful film making experiment, 17 Jan. 2012
By 
This review is from: Le Donk [DVD] (DVD)
Working our way through the films of Shane Meadows, my girlfriend and I sat down to watch this fascinating little faux-docu-drama the other night with the expectation of another study of working class life and the problems of family as per Meadows earlier films. But what we got was something much more imaginative and interesting.

This is a bold experiment. Filmed in a few days in the fasion of a documentary, it follows the adventures of roadie Le Donk (Considine) who is trying to get a new act off the ground (rapper Scor-Zay-Zee) and move into management. Much of the dialogue seems improvised and for the most part it works well. It's quirky, it's fun, it another of those slightly oddball detached from reality characters that Considine does so well. Despite the nature of the experiment there is also room for a bit of character development as Le Donk moves from arrogance and basic unlikeableness to becoming a much nicer person as he deals with the impending birth of his child.

There are a few cringe making scenes as a result of improvisation that didn't quite work, but in general it is an interesting watch. And guest appearances from some well known music people are also welcome additions. 4 stars.
