Best Laid Plans


Best Laid Plans is a drama about two friends, low rung crim Danny (Stephen Graham) and simple Joseph (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) who follows Danny around. Danny has gotten himself into a little trouble owing a local kingpin $10,000 and while being shook down by the kingpin, Joseph comes to his rescue, knocking out two goons very easily. This leads the kingpin to suggest to Danny that to help pay his debt, Joseph can get involved in some illegal cage fighting. But, Joseph is a gentle giant and will not have any of it, but Danny tricks him into it and Joseph seems to be quite good at it. At the same time, both men meet a lover, Danny with a prostitute Lisa (Emma Stansfield) and Joseph with another simple person Isabel (Maxine Peake). Things are about to spiral out of control for Danny as Joseph rises through the ranks and the kingpin wants Joseph for his own nefarious needs. Best Laid Plans is a solid drama, not perfect, particularly as though it seems that the makers want the two men to have lovers no matter what, but this is a drama isn't afraid to delve into the issues of simple people and handles them with some sensitivity. It ends in a pretty typical 'everything is too perfect' ending, but this film is a well worth a look.



Awaydays is an 80s set football hooligan drama about Carty (Nicky Bell), a young man working with his uncle, looking after his troubled sister Molly (Holliday Grainger) and obsessed with football and getting in with the local pack of football 'fans'. After impressing the leader of the pack (Stephen Graham again), he is allowed to travel with them to the games where basically they go to beat up other 'fans'. Over time he becomes more and more involved and things are about to get out of control, moreso after the death of the leader. Can he get out before he gets hurt. Oh, who cares... Why do I watch these football riot dramas? They attempt to make them about the down side of being involved, but it seems like there's a lot of upside to rioting as well. And that's fine, but they all turn out the same way for the most part and Awaydays doesn't stray. I will say that the soundtrack is pretty impressive, a lot better than the film deserves. At least it's not all disappointingly familiar.
