Psalm 51 review
These are the sort of high contrast B/W visuals that I adore. The film may not be my cup of Bovril but I'm no stranger to dance-for-camera shorts having made a few myself.

By the end I felt as though I'd missed something vital which could just have been me being a lazy viewer. Great music though!
