    Excellent work chaps , do you have a website for furthur projects etc ?

    It’s hilarious how the media made such a big deal of these ‘amateur’ riots. I can only imagine what would have been made of riots such as those that occurred in Kenya during the last presidential elections in Dec 2007.

  • Dunies

    Concreat Blair Wiched.
    Another movie in the making Im sure.  

  • Chuc

    THE TWO BLOKES THAT MADE THIS ARE FUCKING CUNTS & SHIT DOCUMENTARY MAKERS. 

    WHAT A COMPLETE WASTE OF AN HOUR. 

    DID I MENTION THEY ARE CUNTS? 

    • Moosemasher

      Excuse me? We’re both fucking cunts & shit documentary makers, complete waste of an hour? How dare you say that, ok you didnt like it thats fair enough but to insult me personally like that? Making documentaries isnt my job, im a waiter this was my attempt at showing people what our experiences of the riots were. Do you have the balls  to go into a riot situation voluntarily?  No but you have the balls to slander a stranger on a public forum, and that my friend is an issue for the courts. Think about what you say

      • Chuc

        YOU’RE BOTH STILL MASSIVE CUNTS.

        I HOPE THE BLOKE WHO’S NUMBER PLATE YOU FLASHED UP, IN SOME SORT OF VAIN ATTEMPT TO JUSTIFY THE REASONS FOR YOU BEING THERE, FINDS YOU AND KICKS THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF YOU.

        WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? SOME SORT OF VIGILANTLY WITH A FUCKING SHIT CAMERA? 

        JOG ON YOU WASTE OF FUCKING SKIN.

        Why even bother making such a shit film? What were you trying to prove? Oh look at us we’ve got a camera and we’re shedding like on all the little hooligan chavs that are hell bent on destroying this fine conservative country. FUCK YOU!!!

        Maybe going down to London and filming the real riots, that had an actual reason for being, and weren’t just a bunch of chavy, Reebok wearing inbreeds out to steal as much shit they could from the nearest cash converters, would have been a better idea.

        You said about the riots were caused by “rumours” and one dead man, are you actually fucking serious, or just retarded?

        And, another thing, you plan on taking me to court because I have an opinion of you? Brilliant, you actually are the dumbest film maker I’ve ever wasted time talking to.  /slow clap

        • Moosemasher

          You are just full of sunshine arent you, where did you go when the riots came? Was your first documentary an oscar winner? No and i wasnt expecting mine to be, I dont have the money for amazing cameras, i dont have the time or money to drive to london Ive got a job to work.

          Probably will get my head kicked in by Salford people, probably will but ah well I look forward to it.

          Every riot outside of tottenham was just people jumping on the bandwagon ergo a death and some rumours. Seems you care less about the film and just want to start an internet argument with a stranger, I didnt make this to achieve that result; I made it to beef up my portfolio, to gain experience of documentary making, to try and get myself into a world where im not arguing with people who have nothing better to do than type slating, unbalanced reviews and insults in CAPITAL LETTERS because they dont have anything better to do.

          No im not taking you to court, Im making you aware of Libel law in this country, you’ve slandered me on a public forum. You cant do that in the modern world where everythings on the record, and plus why would you want to? Im sure when the internet was invented they didnt envision strangers using it to insult each other viscerally, its the greatest communication tool humanity has ever had connecting everyone with everyone but the way you’re using it just cheapens the whole thing. Grow up shouty man

          • Chuc

            Btw, I don’t think both of you are cunts, at all.

            I just feel like you had a chance to make a semi-decent documentary, that asked the people involved what their motivation was, and why they felt the need to burn down their library and fuck up the place in which they live.

            But you didn’t, you just went around filming the aftermath, and calling people scum. Shame really. 

          • harry.e.w

            I still think they’re cunts… Except the smarter kid they got to type the second half of their last post. 
            Big up that guy for making Chuc cower and apologise.

            Do you want to touch my bum and fiddle with my slightly moist ball sack?  You know you want to. 

  • pj

    Do not bother, terrible camera work, editing, commentary, conclusion etc etc..   The lads clearly have no backround or insight into documentary making or sociology.  

    For the majority of the doc. they stick behind the police lines talking to the rioters less to ask them questions than to shout “scum” at them.

    The import question which should be asked: how and why normative social boundaries fell apart? is never considered. 

    • Moosemasher

      Oi i said the camera was having a hard time focussing as it was so smokey, there were 5 or 6 building on fire around me, kinda hard to get a crisp shot. I had my camera tied to my wrist and shot it all handicam as i didnt want ten lads to stomp me for my camera, a BBC cameraman got put in hospital that night for his camera.

      Anyone who burns their own library down is scum to me and i dont care how you view that statement. Thank you for the ‘balanced’ review

    • Marc Pettifer

      I’d rather ask the question why people like you so clearly far removed from the situation feel moved to act as if you have a clue why it happened.

  • DaveSurge

    Highest estimated cost of riots: £100m.
    Tax Avoidance by Vodafone: £6 Billion
    Tax spent on Libyan intervention: £1 Billion
    Tax avoidance in 2010 by richest people in UK: £7 Billion
    Tax payers bill for banking crisis: £131 Billion
    Tax money spent in Iraqi conflict: £4.5 billion
    Tax money spent on Afghan conflict (up until 2007): £7 billion
    Total MP expenses bill (2007): £87.6m
    PEOPLE RIOT WHEN THEY FEEL LIKE THE POWERS THAT BE ARE FUCKING THEM EVERY WHICH WAY. TAKE A LOOK AT THE NUMBERS. IS IT OK FOR US TO BE ROBBED OF BILLIONS BY THE BANKERS? BUT WHEN SOME PEOPLE WEARING HOODIES STEAL SOME STUFF IT’S NOT OK? WAKE UP!

    • harry.e.w

      You make a valid point on the broader scheme of things, and I agree.
      But you argue that the cost in a matter of this magnitude is important… this is about the audacity of the vacant minded, ingrates that plague our youth, and how such a rift has come through this country.These jumped up, brain-cell sharing, kids are doing this because its FUN! Not because the ‘Powers that be’ are fucking with them.
      Without society we are monkey men living in the wild.

      Violence for the sake of violence will not win the cause, Looting and setting property ablaze will only further increase the police state.  Don’t you understand that the police and entities  of the state use agents provocateurs and entrapment measures to lure the people into committing these acts?  The tyrants know exactly what they are doing in these instances, they know how to incite violence among the people and it works every time, the people fall for it every time, and it only pushes our cause back and gives the state reason to crack down harder and infringe on civil liberties…

        Interesting , these riots.I don’t live in the uk so did’nt
        follow too closely but it appeared to me that they were not rebelious at
        all .It seemed to be more about looting than anything else. Not anti
        this or anti that . I would say more in the lines of pure obedience to
        the capitalist philosophy . What’s important is amassing wealth . It
        doesn’t matter how you do it or who you fuck over as long as you come
        out of it a winner.This is the example set by the captains of industry
        and finance. We let them get away with it then act surprised and
        horrified when our children follow their example. Nicking a pair of
        trainers is a crime. Getting some poor bastard in Bangladesh or wherever
        to make the trainers is normal. Calling the rioters (for want of a
        better word) scum  is not very clever at all. If you show people how to
        behave, you can’t then blame them for behaving that w

  • Journeyintosound

    One of the issues the police were having was related to the high number of spectators and this video just showed two guys compounding the issue. In my opinion this was by no means a documentary, but rather just home video of two guys who wanted to check out the commotion on their streets. And Chuc, your comments are quite commical, i smell a troll or one very angry person of who is missing the point of their existence

  • kate

    Why are you people so hateful and judgmental towards each other? If someone wants to make a documentary they can make it however they want.  You “critics” should try going outside and having a life of your own instead of sitting in front of your computer and criticizing everything that isn’t up to your lofty standards.

  • Hope

    if a stranger told you of a ‘successful’ society where everyone had enough money, food, clothes,cars,  holidays, wide screen tv etc …. you might think it was a society that you would like to live in…….and rightly so……….until they mentioned the small matter of  ONE MILLION unemployed young people ……..

    The idea was good, and even though this doc displays a kind of unexperience in dealing with camera and other things (during the footage are added personal comments a bit weird ), i enjoyed as showed me something on what really happened on the streets..so it is a good work..
    disagree of course completely with this kind of riots are useless and if they fight against the system, why they do steal and loot the products of the system? it seems they appreciate them

  • guest

    “why are you videoing me???!!!!”    “because you”re scum!!!!!”  best line in the whole documentery.  By the way moosemasher….very well done and i absolutly loved it. it just goes to show how a bunch of no minds can do something of this nature just because they’re bored. most of them didn’t really care why or how it started…as long as they got to throw some rocks at the police. very well documented and got some great scenes of these so called “protesters” in action.  would like to see more docs when u make them. again  “well done and all the best luck to you”

    It’s amazing how no one remembers (or even cares) that the officers probably have families who were worried about them. I haven’t seen a valid reason for any of the riots. Feeling bad for the youth of a nation is a lot harder when senseless violent tantrums are their method of “political movement”. And as annoyed as I am about my generation being stereotyped and belittled, this frustrates me more.
    A decent video though. May not be hard-hitting, but getting someone’s perspective is always good.
