A clever adaptation; but more poetic than fun
8 October 2011 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

'Random' is a one part a television play, one part a monologue: you could almost consider it a prose poem illustrated with images. In fact, it's a clever adaptation of a stage play, whose writer has clearly thought intelligently about how best to bring it to the screen. The (British West Indian) language is finely written, being simultaneously distinctive, real, and harmonic. But the story is bleak and lacking any sense of comfort or redemption, and the narrative voices not especially sympathetic. There's a fine reading from Nadine Marshall, who voices almost all the script (regardless of which character is speaking); but it's not exactly fun to watch.
