I’ve now watched the first two films in Steve McQueen’s Small Axe anthology and both have been exceptional. But Lovers Rock … that was something special. If I tried to explain the plot to you (there isn’t much to it!) you would never believe it would work. Yet I was entranced. The “Silly Games” scene in particular was pure magic. I agree with this LA Times article (which gives the background to “Silly Games”) which calls it is “one of the most patient and loving celebrations of music ever captured on film.”
