I'll Sleep When I'm Dead Review


Very Good
To say that the new Mike Hodges film I'll Sleep When I'm Dead confounds expectations doesn't even really begin to describe what this beguiling curiosity does, which shouldn't really be surprise, as Hodges is the director who's given us everything from 1998's Croupier to the Max von Sydow campfest Flash Gordon. Shot mostly in the seedier parts of Brixton (non-swinging London), I'll Sleep is just as ill-concerned with looking like a flash gangster flick - which, in some strange sense, it is - than it is with marrying its two wildly divergent plot strands.

In the first, seemingly primary story, we follow Davey Graham (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) on his none-too-taxing nightly rounds: a little coke-delivery to a fancy party, then a one-nighter with a blonde model (whom he robs), and then to home. Only he's being followed by some tuxedo-wearing rent-a-thugs and a malevolent Malcolm McDowell, who assault him in a shockingly horrific manner - it's quick and brutal, a Hodges specialty, and completely out of nowhere, like a random visit from the Devil.
