Knucks 'Leon The Professional' by Dir. Lx

Rob Ulitski - 9th May 2022

Dir. Lx directs a gripping promo for Knucks, the first chapter in a trilogy of videos between the director and artist. 

The video for Leon The Professional - which takes its name from Luc Besson's classic 1994 movie - tells the story of a young hitman making a name for himself, whilst a case is being built against him.

Throughout the course of the video we watch time run out for Leon, ultimately leading to a bloody confrontation with the officer tracking him.

The enigmatic vignettes feature a blend of fiction and documentary aesthetics, which lend a sense of realism and raw energy to the concept. The chase scenes create a feeling of unease, balanced with a quick-cut edit that keeps up the tension and excitement throughout.
