“…a noble and streetwise film” – Screen Africa 2013
‘…a devastating portrait of an ageing gangster” – July Mail & Guardian 2013
"....Despite being set in South Africa, The Devil’s Lair is a film that will resonate with viewers worldwide" - Cinemaax October 2013
“Ageing gangster Braaim is a drug dealer and the leader of the gang, The Nice Time Kids. In this verite style film, we dive deep into the constrictive, claustrophobic space of a Mitchell’s Plein gang leader whose plans for escaping a life of poverty have still not and probably never will, come to fruition. A pacy, gritty ride through the underworld of a deadly turf war that doesn’t give in to the sensationalist glamour of the “gangster.” Rather the film is a mature reflection on the relationship between poverty and freedom, love and free choice, that surprises the viewer with its intimate portrayal of a world of despair, entrapment, contrasts, and in the end, of unceasing hope" - Durban International Film Festival - May 2013
