Jelani Blackman 'Swerve' by Brock Neal Roberts

David Knight - 4th Mar 2020

X marks the spot, in Brock Neal Roberts' psychological tale of the hustle for Jelani Blackman's Swerve.

Faced with the prominent marking in his back garden, Blackman is compelled to start digging. But the oppressive tone of Roberts' video - the yellowish tint of the rapper's claustrophobic home, the low angles, and the increasing invasion of soil into the house - feeds into the idea of his unease, and a sense of isolation.

Is there something down there that would be better staying in the ground? There is only one way to find out...
