Bill Nighy as Uncle Louis Gryffoyn in AKA
With “AKA,” director Roy has crafted a compelling tale of human frailty and the hunger for power that’s as bold visually as it is thematically. Here, at last, is a film that challenges in new and exciting ways.
Roy’s stylistic experiment in skewing audience point of view pays off, largely due to an absorbing story and engaging performances. Audacious, successful – not adjectives you expect when it comes to British film making.
