The Knife That Killed Me Reviews:

I have not read the ebook on which this movie is based, nor was I really aware of the content of either works but it sounded interesting as a project and as such I watched it when the occasion arose. The base plot will be familiar as a boy and his teenage son transport to Leeds to live with the man's father. The teenager (Paul) finds himself struggling to fit into a fresh school, with negative attention from the bullies (led by Roth), and the another social group seeming to be accepting of him being Shane and the loosely grouped freaks that don't fall into any another group. Paul is forced to do a task for Roth, drawing him into their circle and setting him at odds with a rival gang; while the freaks offer a possibility for acceptance and friendship, the power offered by Roth to vent anger, pain and frustration is also a draw.Essentially it is a high-school set tale of fitting in and struggling to navigate the cliques and social groups therein, so at a certain lvl it will be familiar to viewers either from their own lives or from another films. The nature of the storyline is dark though, particularly as we launch the movie with Paul talking of his own death (the knife of the title). This darkness is presented as a war for Paul's soul rather than just social grouping; indeed it is spelt out for us by the narration as such. This takes on a quite religious theme and this aspect is perhaps not very successful as I think it both floated in the background but was also overly pushed (particularly in the presentation of Shane, who is mild, meek and so Christlike that it does rather rob him of any another character). The storyline unfolds with a grim inevitability, with a realistic sense of zone – both in terms of the dark Northern skies, and the social reality of a rather rundown school; while the narrative does go the method you expect, it is the manner in which it does it that engages.The movie appears to have been filmed entirely vs a greenscreen. This allows the movie to have lots of animated feature filled in around the primary props used in the scene. The movie is understated with this though, so it is never excessively done but rather in help of the narrative and is a key part of the atmosphere being well created. Being honest, in the promotional stills I saw before watching the film, it did have the look of a gimmick or of something trying too difficult to be arty, but now it does work very well as it is well judged, creating zone but adding to it in a sparse but visually engaging manner. The slight downside of this approach is that the cast at times do feel very static – very much clearly on their tag in a tiny greenscreen area. Mostly this doesn't create too much of a negative impact (only when folks are walking on the spot but trying to create it look like they are moving forward – never looks natural), but mostly the impact is one I liked – which was it made them perform as if they were on a scene with limits rather than in front of a moving camera. Usually I do not like movies that feel like filmed theatre, but here it is a feeling I liked because it being filmed added a lot to it.Outside of the challenges of the set, the cast do well. McMullen is very good; although he has extremes to go to, he does convince as a student feeling social isolation and pressure – so mostly his actions and decisions enjoy out in a method that feels real. Shelton's Roth is well played too – appealing and risky at the same time, with the two actors testing his lackies being suitably weak-willing but aggressive. Goddard is okay but a bit lacking in the material given to the another main roles, and doesn't create a nice impact as a result. Lee is the another main player, but he is left with a low Jesus figure who doesn't really fit in and is pushed too much to the religious symbolism aspect (that doesn't work) at the expense of having more to do with his character. Older adult performances from Dinsdale, Dunn and others are solidly good.Overall, it is a dark movie with tiny cheer, but it plays out surprisingly well. The animated aspects add rather than detract or distract, supporting produce an oppressive tone to the drama which the cast enjoy well into. At times a bit stagey (not a terrible thing), the movie only really struggles with some aspects of the subtext (religion) and some of the weaker character's motivations, but at its core it is atmospheric and engagingly delivered.


Although I love movie I am not prone to writing movie reviews as my professional time is taken up writing for the theatre. In the situation of the movie The Knife That Killed Me, written and directed by Marcus Romer and Kit Monkman I create a large exception. I interviewed Marcus Romer and some of Pilot Theatre's cast for the touring production of Antigone earlier this year and reviewed the enjoy at its open at Derby Theatre. Intrigued by the green screen work and another media used in Antigone I was very keen to see what they have done with Anthony McGowan's novel The Knife That Killed Me.The Knife That Killed Me is destined to become a cult classic – large time. The dark storyline of teenager Paul (Jack McMullen) and his haulage driver dad (Reece Dinsdale) arriving at a fresh home in Yorkshire after the accidental death of Paul's mother is discovered through a moving collage of Graphic Novel intensity. This is no ordinary teenage angst storyline but a knife wielding bloody symphony of startling imagery with the dark brooding clouds of wintry adversary everytime on the bleak Yorkshire horizon. If the director ever told "cut" in the filming process I for one would have stood well back.The production values are exceptionally high and cleverly wrought taking the viewer through transparent sets lined with hand written text and graffiti. The effect is a type of magical hell. The attention to feature in each frame is phenomenal. Cameras swirl through many a constructive angle to switch from gritty zone to gritty zone and the pot smoking stage with Paul's school mate Shane (Oliver Lee) is pure genius as the smoke rises up and up through the roof of a house depicted in a easy line drawing white on black.The Acheronian globe of the risky teenage gangs and their cronies is the main theme throughout coupled with the confusions of teenage love and deliberate lies woven by children at the school to protect, survive and to deliberately deceive. Actor Jamie Shelton exudes quiet menace as gang leader Roth. On the opposite side of the bleak housing estate resides Goddo played with 'dressed to kill' revengeful swagger by Charles Mnene. This is a scary young boy who delights in beating up the vulnerable but is sensitive about his dead dog. Theatrical joke alert. No-one would wish to hanging around the playground waiting for this Goddo.The character Paul who speaks regularly about 'The Knife That Killed Me' is played with nice understatement by Jack McMullen and his desperate storyline of just wanting to be accepted/loved gotta resonate with us all, teenagers or adults. The stage where he physically and verbally attacks his father is universal and ends with a cruel irony.The movie leads us into many a dark corner, has a superbly actualised gang war and a brilliant twist in the saying which is very difficult to predict. No spoilers in this review. I found this clever movie utterly compelling at a cinema preview. It is dark, has a savage hypnotic humour, is visually special and when it is released on DVD (27th April) I predict it will be racing up the charts to No1.Lastly, I watch a lot of movie and The Knife That Killed Me is the greatest British movie I have seen in years. Equally to be lauded are the wealth of young acting talent in the cast and the directorship of Marcus Romer.
