The Fly was recently awarded Best Comedy, Best Film, and The Roger Deakins Award at Plymouth Film Festival 2015

 

"...But it was ’The Fly’ which had me totally engrossed and wanting for more. In many ways this film started as the most traditional idea of all the films (the silent films of Buster Keaton or Laurel and Hardy come to mind) but it was so well acted and so well structured that it felt entirely fresh.

 

The simple slow moving ‘observational’ camera and that stylized ‘push' toward the Bank door were simple and effectively used as were all the angles within the car. Such simple development of such a simple situation is, I know from personal experience, deceptively hard to sustain. The shots of the gang, as they exit the bank to confront what the Fly has achieved, are priceless. Quite masterful. As I say, it left me wanting more."
