So yeah this film has knocked me for six. On a budget of 1 million (estimated) Micheal Matthews has absolutely knocked it out of the park with his first big feature. I am sitting here writing this knowing its going to be full of platitudes but I honestly cant think of a bad thing to say. The cast is wonderful, the ensemble is on point. The Cinematography is beautiful, they have taken the already beautiful South African landscape and made it scarily visceral. Sean Drummond’s script is dynamite and has taken a run down genre like Westerns and made it original, exciting and fresh. Then there is the unsung character of most movies… The Soundtrack, this one in particular is stirring and really has you sitting on the edge of your seat till the end credits.
Starring Vuyo Dabula, Hamilton Dhlamini, Zethu Dlomo, Kenneth Nkosi, Mduduzi Mabaso, Aubrey Poolo, Lizwi Vilakazi, Warren Masemola, Dean Fourie, Anthony Oseyemi, Brendon Daniels, and Jerry Mofokeng, Five Fingers for Masrseilles screened theatrically across the U.S this past August and September.
Five Fingers for Marseilles will be available October 23 on VOD.
OK then I really don’t want to go into anything else because I want everyone and anyone seeing this movie. You will not regret it, infact I am tempted to say this could easily be your movie of 2018… Yes this could be my strongest recommend to date. I’m going to leave you all with a pretty stirring and eerie clip from the movie in the hopes that I have tempted you in.
