The Take Out

Third of Thraves' six shorts, made for the BFI's 1994 New Directors' package: a ticky, tricksy account of a double-date going to the dogs. With elements of both the nervous obsessiveness of his previous Scratch and the listless languor of his subsequent The Hackney Downs, it's not quite the equal of either, but it's still an enticingly off-centre inspection of (dis)trust, diffidence, and the little perversities folk trade in.
