How is everyone doing?
So i was scrolling through my Insta feed and came across a clip of this short movie made in London. Since I've lived in London my whole life and I'd seen two of the actors in there who were quite funny from the last movie I'd seen with them in, I went ahead and searched it up.
if that makes sense
get yo lil snacks
Deep It is a short movie based on 16-17 year old boys in London who drop out of college and basically chill with the 'mandem on road'. At first I didn't think much of it and thought it was a typical movie about black males who aren't ambitious, but as the story goes along it's breathtaking. It shows the insecurities of young boys to make money and most importantly be known as someone to not mess with. I think what makes this movie so 'deep' is the fact that it shows the reality of how London has been for a while now. Last year, 80 people were stabbed to death in my city, 4 on New Years Eve. Majority of these stabbings are actually committed by teenagers. This movie went in depth to show the audience what actually causes people to do these things, from their point of view instead of the public. I think what I learnt from this movie is what causes people to be so bored on the streets and end up doing what they do, although I will never know what it's like to barely have guidance, it definitely gave me an insight. At the end of the movie it symbolised reflection, and if you and your friends are lost in life together then it's best to stick together and do the right things together. If you pick up a knife for the wrong reasons or any weapon, you're wholeheartedly abandoning yourself and your sanity.
After you've watched it, tell me what you guys think in the comments below x
