David Knight - 28th July 2016

Hector Dockrill's spare treatment of South London singer RAY BLK’s autobiographical My Hood, where people and scenes loom out of the darkness, serves to focus upon RAY's performance and the reflective lyrical content - and Stormzy's contribution later in the track.

It works well, treading a fine line between realistic and theatrical, and not overstepping the mark as it replicates the essence of growing up in South London.
