Elephant

Death in the streets, homes, parks and factories of Belfast. Alan Clarke’s drama – without character or narrative and shot in a documentary style – is a shockingly frank depiction of the futility of sectarian murder. Long steadicam shots tracking the killers trouble any straightforward moral or political reading – their dispassionate gaze casting the viewer as willing voyeur, or perhaps even as accomplice.
