The Joy Of Six

4

Dame Judi gets her flirt on in a smart selection of shorts

As a tapas spread of bite-sized Brit-films, The Joy Of Six is satisfying and varied.

From the sweetness of Judi Dench Facebook-flirting in Friend Request Pending, to the dark sexual dysfunction of Scrubber via stilted families ties and out-of-control urban myths, these tiny marvels groan with controlled emotion.

King of the pack is Matthew Holness’ A Gun For George, its tale of an aspiring pulp fiction writer shot with as much retro panache as his Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, and with a bitter aftertaste of loneliness and failure.

Further proof that good things come in small packages.
