Dirty Pretty Things – 2002 Frears

Strong ensemble led by Chiwetel Ejiofor, Audrey Tautou- Ejofor, in particular, is excellent Film about the haunting and seedy underbelly of London, immigration and the black market Ejofor plays a moral man (something he’s very good at as witnessed in 12 years) forced into an impossible world/situation Visuals are highlighted by some muted green and yellow florescent blends that bleed in nearly every scene Part of a very eclectic oeuvre for Frears Modest film- not in top 20 of 2002 Recommend
