Rob Ulitski - 16th Nov 2020

Jeshi bears witness to a dystopian, ruckus hell of a London pub toilet before he burns it to the ground, in Brock Neal Roberts' promo for Looks Like Trouble. 

The familiar yet nightmarish location is a stylised, often grimy backdrop to the frenetic action, as Jeshi is pulled through a flurry of menacing scenarios. Mirrors shatter, freeze-frame fight scenes materialise in the shadows, and Jeshi's head protrudes from a toilet bowl... 

The trippy aesthetic is elevated by DoP Nick Morris' striking cinematography, with strobing lights and an abundant use of AR rig movements to reflect the artist quite literally spinning out of control.

A nightmarishly welcoming sight of a pub toilet where love, drugs and violence all live side by side.
