A portal into the oppressive and grimy underbelly of contemporary urban existence, Pistol is an apocalyptic study of frustration and release. Combining a lush, high-contrast aesthetic and Godard-influenced camera work with a raw drum-and-bass soundtrack, the film pulsates with urgency and a perpetual sense of threat.
