News & Interviews for Small Axe: Lovers Rock
It runs just over an hour, but you'll surrender to this intoxicating, nostalgic film.
Given McQueen's tendency to focus on human suffering, it's wonderful to see him cut loose here: Lovers Rock is easily the most exhilarating film he's ever made.
We don't need clunky exposition to introduce us to a dozen or so principal characters when Gary Davy has cast such singularly memorable faces, and Lisa Duncan has designed such distinctive costumes.
Despite its brief 68-minute runtime, Lovers Rock is loaded with tactile, sensuous storytelling.
Regardless of the big picture, however, "Lovers Rock" is a fast, loose statement of its own - a galvanizing salute to finding freedom from the system by living in the moment.
