Critic Reviews for Brakes
By turns utterly charming and inherently shambolic, this no-budget feature-directing debut from the actress Mercedes Grower is an ambitious trawl through London love lives, with a bonus structural gimmick.
Charming and could easily have been brilliant, if only it had been more concise.
Full of wry observations on the way Londoners connect (and disconnect), 'Brakes' could be the perfect final date movie.
The film's main strength is its ability to create contained, plausible realities for each of its relationships, even if one or two of them suffer from idiot-hipster gestures
The script is wobbly at times and certain scenarios feel contrived, but Brakes manages to be charming nonetheless.
