As a tapas spread of bite-sized Brit-films,
The Joy Of Six
is satisfying and varied.
From the sweetness of Judi Dench Facebook-flirting in Friend Request Pending , to the dark sexual dysfunction of Scrubber via stilted families ties and out-of-control urban myths, these tiny marvels groan with controlled emotion.
King of the pack is Matthew Holness’ A Gun For George , its tale of an aspiring pulp fiction writer shot with as much retro panache as his Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace , and with a bitter aftertaste of loneliness and failure.
Further proof that good things come in small packages.
