Samuel Taylor has directed a brilliantly engaging shoestring epic for the raucous swagger of Bloody Knees' Maybe It's Easy.

Essentially it's a wrestling version of Rocky, chronicling an unlikely road to triumph. But although the beards are fake, the light comedy of the first act makes way for a thrilling finale that looks impressively real. Well, as real as wrestling gets...

It was prepped and shot over four days in which the band trained in a bodybuilding gym in full wrestling makeup, took to donning spandex with fake beards to run across London Bridge at 4am, topped off with a 12 hour day of bone-crunching bodyslams and knee drops.

Its testament to Taylor's close relationship with the band, and his ability to tell a story, that this has a heart and energy that well exceeds it's budget.
