West 11 Review

Image for West 11

Hellbent on a hedonistic lifestyle but running out of hedonism funds, Joe Beckett (Alfred Lynch) seriously considers the proposal of a chap in a bar to murder his aunt for cash.

★★★★★

Hollowed by the hedonism of ’60s London, Alfred Lynch’s angry young man resorts to murder. While Michael Winner’s swinging social-realism isn’t exactly sincere, a certain authenticity seeps from West 11’s Notting Hill slums, a squalid dead-zone evocatively shot by Peeping Tom’s Otto Heller.

Evocatively shot but dated and lacking in a certain sincerity.
