Sugarhouse

3

Character intro of the month: Andy Serkis’ feral, tattooed drug dealer Hoodwink, stomping around a dingy flat, naked. Finding his gun missing, he flies into a rage, out for blood, only to be calmed with Zen breathing by his pregnant girlfriend… for now. Flirting heavily with the absurd, Gary Love’s violent East Laandahn crime drama is saved by a sly sense of humour and its cast’s bracing commitment – exemplified by the DVD’s titter-inducing extra, an MTV-style tour of street urchin D’s ‘crib’, presented by a brilliantly in-character Ashley Walters.
