David Knight - 4th Aug 2017

Bob Gallagher and Enter Shikari enter the fray of dystopian drama with a sharp, smart and punchy allegory on the lurking danger of mind control and sensory nullification for Live Outside.

From the sterile pharmaceutical production line to the drug-enhanced escape through VR environments, frontman Rou Reynolds and his co-workers are having the time of the lives, until a darker reality beings to intrude.

It's a familiar storyline, but is still compulsively watchable thanks to Gallagher's direction. He builds claustrophobic tension, shot through with dark humour, largely through two elements not largely dependent upon budget: character and editing.
