Lonely Wolf: London International Film Festival
The Lonely Wolf: London International Film Festival was reconceived by Adrian Perez in 2020 after an inactive period, as his response for the need of a modern film festival fit for the global age. Lonely Wolf hosts 4 online seasonal competition rounds, followed by an annual week-long film festival event hosted in some of the most impressive cultural venues in London (the St Pancras Clock Tower already a confirmed venue).
Winter 2020 Lonely Wolf Reviews
We were thrilled to be included in Lonely Wolf’s Winter Reviews post written by Hannah Brown. She perfectly describes the series as an “unfolding intrigue of a live action millennial Cluedo, in equal parts ridiculous and frankly portraying the gritty glamour of life in your twenties.”
“As a first episode, Sloppy Jones is virtually faultless. Jong succeeds in the difficult task of inviting us into the world of these characters and the hilariously morbid circumstances they find themselves facing, all in under four minutes. Thanks to Jamie Hart, Sophie Nation and Jonathan Neil Alexander’s script, the episode is structurally watertight. It creates exposition through individual character interviews and cleverly bookends them with ensemble scenes, anchoring flashbacks and comic off-shoots to the social and spatial parameters of this world.”Hannah Brown, Lonely Wolf
Sloppy Jones seats itself confidently amongst contemporary comedy shows, reading like Schitt’s Creek and embracing the breaking of the fourth wall we know and love from The Office and Modern Family. It does more than play these techniques for laughs, however. It is also showcases representation in comedy; a very welcome thing.
Technical brilliance aside, let’s focus on the simple question of enjoyability. If given half the chance would I binge watch an entire series of Sloppy Jones? Yes, with relish.Hannah Brown, Lonely Wolf
