MAY I KILL U ?
Baz is one of Britain’s new breed of police, a cycle cop. Although he appears to be a figure of fun, a freak accident will turn him into a psychopath. As riots break out in London, a head injury changes Baz from an everyday police officer into a mad vigilante, offering no-hope criminals a stark choice, arrest or death. Baz sees this campaign as ‘lawful killing’. Criminals too stunned, confused or drunk to argue are politely asked, “May I kill you?” and merrily dispatched on their final journey. All these exchanges are recorded on Baz’ helmet-cam and posted anonymously on social networks. Using the alter ego ‘@N4cethelaw’, Baz acquires an increasing number of fans with every killing, dispensing justice to scumbags, cleaning up society like some bizarre and deadly ‘Robin Hood’, ridding society of its’ ills. But, in a sudden reversal of fortunes, Baz is captured by an enraged relative of one of his presumed “kills” and faces slaughter or even worse… exposure. More than ten years after Revelation ( screened at the BIFFF in 2002 ), Stuart Urban is back with a British Dexter on wheels! Dark, caustic and sharp, May I Kill U leans on a thought-provoking screenplay with the London riots of 2011 as a backdrop. In the leads, you’ll recognize Kevin Bishop ( L’Auberge Espagnole and the horror flick The Big Finish ) and Jack Doolan ( Cockneys VS Zombies ). Enjoy !
