PEAKY BLINDERS….Season One
Drawn back like iron filings to a Magnet…..
OPENING SCENE, Thomas Shelby walks a big black horse, down a filthy alley…
Washing droops on sagging clothes lines, people running everywhere, their fear palpable in the choking air. He sits the horse with calculated, casual ease, left hand on left thigh, right hand holding the reins loosely. The clip, clop, clip, clop of hoofbeats rings out from the cobbled street…..Warren Ellis’s Violin, moans and weeps, and then Nick Cave’s dark tones cover everything as he preaches “Red Right Hand”
Here it comes……. the transfixing, hypnotic, power of Peaky Blinders!!!
