Like most British crime/drug films, full of tough characters and use the film to glamorise drug use. Shifty puts you right into the heart of it of the low-level drug dealer, whose just trying to get by. The film revolves around Shifty, a drug dealer who has slightly lost his way and is now dealing crack cocaine. When an old friend, Chris returns to see him seemingly for a party with some friends, his real motives play out and we find that Chris abandoned his best friend who now has a responsible adult lifestyle in Manchester. Chris then follows Shifty around for the day, which isn't going to be the average day. The performances in this film were outstanding, I think Riz Ahmed has a good career ahead of him as an actor, he was extremely convincing and paired with Daniel Mays as Chris, the humour flowed which was perfectly placed in order to sudue the tense between them which will ultimately errupt. The supporting cast were also pretty good, such as Glen a double dealing drug dealer who is the cause of much of the trouble Shifty faces, as well as Trevor, an out of control drug addict. The film is definitely forceful, not only giving a bleak look into the life of a drug dealer but also showing some light to how life in the London suburbs can be, the films main focus however, is how Chris is trying to help Shifty leave this life of crime and its quite moving to see the lengths he will go to, to not only prove to his friend he regrets leaving him but to give him a better life. Eran Creevy did a great job on the direction, coupled with a great soundtrack and brilliant performances. I can't fault Shifty at all and stands as one of the best British gems to come out in the last 10 years.

Don S (ag) wrote: I find myself with little to say about this one. Low-budget horror, supposedly based on a Lovecraft story though Lovecraft's work is usually more intense and detailed than the sketch of a story we get here. Acting is bad, effects are as expected for the budget. Not much to comment on because it isn't much of a movie.
