spiral, series 6 finale, bbc four review - hot fuzz hit new heights

Happily, theres hope for Spiral junkies as series six ends, we bring you news that series seven has just gone into production. This is just as well, because these last dozen episodes have been an object lesson in how to make TV drama for the mind and body, nimbly evading cop show genre-pitfalls to bring us carefully-shaded characters operating within a Venn diagram of overlapping grey areas.

Looking back at publicity photos from previous series of Spiral (the first one was shown on BBC Four in 2006), its shocking to see how much the cast have aged. Mind you, so would anybody in their line of work (its not the years, its the mileage as Indiana Jones would have it). This season, weve had Captain Laure Berthaud impaled by existential doubt about how she can ever be a mother to baby Romy, fiery lawyer Josphine Karlsson brought to the brink of personal and career ruin by a date-rape outrage, and Laures right-hand man and now lover Gilou Escoffier near-fatally compromised by his idiotic theft of gold ingots from a crime scene. Their old team mate Tintin Fromentin (Fred Bianconi, pictured below), a solid cop whos consistently underestimated, thinks his comrades have crossed the line and has quit Berthauds CID unit in disgust.

Several important threads were left dangling at the end of the series, but the plot isnt as important as the characters, their development, and their relationships to the world theyre moving through. Almost everywhere you look, there has been some treasurable little nugget to latch onto. For instance, the subplot about Judge Robans brain tumour was handled with wit and sympathy, from Robans all-too-understandable trepidation about going to the hospital for tests, the surgeons tactlessly cheery demonstration with a model brain about how theyd drill a hole through Robans skull and stick a needle down it, to the revelation that Roban had nobody he could ask to pick him up from hospital apart from his servile office bureaucrat, Didier. Yet through it all, Roban still managed to stay focused on his work, despite his boss at the Justice Ministry pondering the quality of his lucidity and discernment. That rules out most people here, retorted Roban drily. Philippe Ducloss portrayal of Roban has been worth a cupboard full of gongs.

Spirals wheels-within-wheels structure, moving between cops, criminals, politicians and the judiciary, has become entirely seamless. The Camara brothers, hardcore gangsters posing as community leaders and local benefactors in order to soak public funds from Mayor Fabienne Mangin who was happy to pay cash for votes from the ethnic community were portrayed with probing accuracy. The solidarity march after Bakary Camara was shot by police while trying to escape from a safe-cracking raid was a masterpiece of self-serving propaganda, with its morally outraged posters and graffiti saying Je suis Bakary. The polices reluctance to make arrests on the Camaras home turf of Clry-sous-Bois (a fictional but plausible multiracial suburb suffering from crime, poverty and social breakdown) for fear of provoking a violent backlash became wholly understandable when gangs launched an Assault on Precinct 13-style attack on the local police station.

The investigation into the gruesome murder of police officer Laurent Mercier that opened the series gradually spread out to encompass police corruption, stolen gold, money-laundering property deals, people trafficking and a babies-for-sale racket, but in Spiral nobody is squeaky-clean. Berthauds squad would never get anywhere without a bit of brazen rule-bending, though they dont help themselves with bouts of catastrophic incompetence. For instance, a suspect under observation got away because Gilou and Tintin were having a childish punch-up in the back of their van, and the entire Mercier case was almost blown when they forgot to fill out an arrest warrant.

However, they need take no lessons from the legal fraternity. Lawyer Karlsson tried to unravel the case of Procureur Machards intimate involvement with the death of a male prostitute, which Roban had already tried to bury. Her boss Eric Edelman warned her the judiciary would simply close ranks, and so it proved (pictured above, Louis-Do de Lencquesaing as Edelman, Audrey Fleurot as Karlsson). Perhaps the only false note in the series was Karlssons homicidal assault on her rapist (shes known to be impetuous, but this was verging on the deranged.) We wait to see if her career can survive into series seven.

Filming for the movie began on July 8, 2019. Originally, it was scheduled for release on May 15, 2020, but pulled due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was scheduled to be released on May 21, 2021, but its release date was later pushed up to May 14, 2021, when it was then released.

Although originally thought to be a reboot, Rock has confirmed that it will share a continuity with the other movies. The film was originally going under the title The Organ Donor, but the title was later officially revealed as Spiral: From the Book of Saw.

Working in the shadow of his father, Detective Ezekiel "Zeke" Banks and his rookie partner take charge of an investigation into grisly murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city's gruesome past. Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer's morbid game.

During a Fourth of July parade, off-duty detective Marv Bozwick chases a thief down a sewer drainage pipe. Attacked from behind by a figure wearing a pig mask, Bozwick wakes to find himself suspended by his tongue in an active subway tunnel and is given a choice via recorded message: tear out his tongue and live, or remain until the next train arrives, killing him. Unable to escape the trap, Bozwick is killed by a speeding subway train. The next day, police chief Angie Garza assigns Detective Ezekiel "Zeke" Banks a partner, idealistic rookie William Schenk. Banks and Schenk investigate Bozwick's death and Banks realizes this to be similar to the now deceased Jigsaw Killer.

Meanwhile, Detective Fitch who had, several years prior, ignored a backup call, resulting in Banks being shot is abducted and placed in a trap where he must rip his fingers off to avoid electrocution in a filling water basin; he fails to do so in time and dies. Some officers begin to suspect that Banks may be responsible, due to his history with Fitch. A box then arrives at the station, containing a pig puppet and a piece of Schenk's tattooed skin inside. A small vial inside the box directs the police to a butcher shop, which was previously a hobby shop that Banks and his father would go to. Upon arriving, the team discovers a tape recorder and a skinned corpse, identified as Schenk. Banks' father and former police chief Marcus Banks arrives at a warehouse, attempting to track down the killer, when he is abducted. Garza is then abducted, and placed in a trap in the precinct's cold storage where she has to sever her spinal cord on a blade to avoid having hot wax pour from a pipe onto her face; she manages to successfully sever her spine but dies of her injures, with her body found by a devastated Banks.

While chasing a lead, Banks is captured and wakes up at the warehouse, handcuffed to a pipe with a hacksaw nearby. He considers sawing off his arm, but is able to escape using a loose bobby pin. He then discovers Peter Dunleavy, his former partner who he reported for murder, chained in place. In front of him is a large machine which crushes glass bottles and hurls shrapnel at him at high speed; a tape recorder explains that Banks can choose to free him or leave him to die. Although Banks attempts to save him, he dies from blood loss.

Moving to another room, Banks then finds Schenk, who is revealed to have faked his death by using the skinned corpse of Benny Reitz, who lured Bozwick into the tunnels, and has been the copycat Jigsaw Killer all along. He explains that the person Pete murdered was Schenk's father, who was killed for being willing to testify against a dirty cop. He also reveals that Marcus was responsible for the policies that enabled such corruption to occur without consequence, which eventually resulted in his father's death. Hoping to recruit Ezekiel as a partner in punishing corrupt officers, Schenk presents Banks' final test. Marcus is being restrained in the air and slowly drained of blood, which will continue until Banks uses his father's gun's last bullet to either hit a target that will save Marcus but allowing Schenk to escape using an elevator, or to kill Schenk and let his father bleed to death. Ezekiel decides to shoot the target to save Marcus, causing his restraints to loosen and lowering him to the ground, and then begins to fight Schenk once he removes the IV drip. Shortly after, a SWAT team arrives and aimed their guns at Ezekiel due to his hostile actions against Schenk. Suddenly, Marcus restraints yank him upward again, thanks to the wire mechanism the SWAT team unknowingly severs when they cut the door open. A gun is revealed to be affixed to Marcus arm, and his arm is then pulled up by the restraints after several search lights behind him is turned on to cover Marcus harness and body. The SWAT teams, thinking that Marcus is attempting to fire at them, ended up shooting him to death, much to Ezekiel's terror. Ezekiel screams in anguish as he watches Schenk escapes while shushing him, as Ezekiel did to him when his father was killed years ago.

According to Chris Rock, the origins of Spiral came from a chance meeting with the vice chairman of Lionsgate, Mike Burns, at a friend's wedding in Brazil, and he felt doing something in the horror genre would be a new avenue to take in his career, though he planned to include some comedic elements in the film. Rock approached Lionsgate with his ideas of extending the franchise, who became very interested in the concept. Lionsgate's CEO Joe Drake said that Rock's idea was "completely reverential to the legacy of the material while reinvigorating the brand with his wit, creative vision and passion for this classic horror franchise". By January 2018, industry rumors had said that Lionsgate had begun discussions of a ninth Saw film, for which the Spierig Brothers would not be returning. The directors confirmed in an interview with Screen Rant that their film laid the ground work for future sequels. By April 2018, Twisted Pictures was developing a sequel with Jigsaw writers Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger. An early iteration of the script had Rock's character related to Danny Glover's David Tapp from the first film. Stolberg and Goldfinger opted not to go in this direction as it "didn't pass the smell test."

On May 16, 2019, the film was officially in pre-production. Former series director Darren Lynn Bousman returned to helm the film, along with series veterans Mark Burg and Oren Koules as producers. Rock was involved as an executive producer, in addition to writing the story treatment. The original Saw creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell, along with Daniel Heffner, joined Rock as executive producers. Stolberg and Goldfinger were confirmed as scriptwriters. With the announcement, Rock stated, "I've been a fan of Saw since the first film in 2004. I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place." Burg and Koules said that Rock's treatment of Saw was comparable to what Eddie Murphy had done for buddy cop films in 48 Hrs., giving the Saw series a "completely fresh perspective". Likewise, Bousman stated that in comparison to previous entries, Spiral included less violence and gore, expressing the conviction that the gore and violence were the gimmick for him back when he started working in the Saw films, but that both elements now serve the story, which focuses more on character, tension and fear. As the film's killer is a Jigsaw copycat who differentiates from the original, it was decided to replace Billy the Puppet with a new puppet, as Bousman felt that if the original Jigsaw is replaced, the original puppet should go and be replaced with a new one so the new killer can't be compared. Stolberg also confirmed that the ninth installment would exist in the same canon as the previous eight films, and would not be a reboot or a direct sequel to Jigsaw.

On July 8, 2019, principal photography commenced in Toronto, Ontario, under the working title of The Organ Donor, with cinematographer Jordan Oram. Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, Max Minghella, and Marisol Nichols were announced to be starring in the film. Lionsgate's CEO Joe Drake stated, "We think Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Rock along with Max Minghella and Marisol Nichols make this film completely special in the Saw canon and we can't wait to unleash this unexpected and sinister new story on fans of this franchise. This is next level of Saw on full tilt". According to Bousman, a scene featuring a trap had to be cut from the film due to it being "too gnarly". On August 28, 2019, filming officially wrapped up. During post-production, editing was completed by Dev Singh.

As of May 21, 2021, Spiral has grossed $11.3 million in the United States and Canada, and $3.3 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $14.6 million. The film has been met with mixed reviews from critics. It received a rating of 37% from Rotten Tomatoes, based on 183 reviews, while Metacritic gave it a score of 39 out of 100, based on 31 critics. While critics praised the acting and the franchise's new direction, they were divided on the execution of its storyline and pacing.

In April 2021, a sequel film, titled Saw X, was confirmed to be in development with Twisted Pictures. However, Bousman stated that it was a premature announcement that surprised him and the film's producers. He said, "Just because we made Spiral doesn't mean Saw ceases to exist. Just because Spiral is here, that doesn't mean there won't be a Saw IX. This is not the ninth film in the Saw franchise. There easily could be a Saw IX that follows Jigsaw. I think they're waiting to see how [Spiral] goes and how audiences respond to determine what happens next."

In an April 2021 interview with Deadline Hollywood, Lionsgate Television chairman Kevin Beggs announced that Lionsgate TV is in early talks to develop a television series based on Spiral, alongside Mark Burg and Oren Koules' Twisted Television productions.

spiral, series 6, bbc four review - grime pays in the city of light

Weve seen some interesting series filling BBC Fours celebrated Saturday evening slot recently, which if nothing else have prompted plenty of below-the-line discussion. Happily, we can now turn our backs on all that and hail the return of the ace Paris-based French cop show Spiral.

Rather than trying to invent the most elaborately grotesque murders or equip its detectives with fashionable psychological conditions, Spiral gets all the fundamentals right. It keeps its characters real (which means far from perfect), and its criminal investigations are distinctly plausible. Its depiction of the interplay between police and judiciary is far more fluid and naturalistic than the schematic likes of Law and Order, and it highlights the political power struggles constantly being waged at all levels with great skill and economy (pictured below, Thierry Godard as Gilou and Fred Bianconi as Tintin).

The headline case as we began this sixth series was the death of a young policeman, Laurent Mercier (a name that sounds as if it belongs on a champagne bottle). His torso was discovered in a pile of household rubbish discarded in the street, and, after our dogged investigators had worked their way past a couple of misdirecting leads (including the inadvertent discovery of a halal abattoir operator whod been forging his halal certificates), the dead mans head was found in the bath at his apartment.

Hed been taking surveillance photos of the Camara brothers, Bakary and Drissa, a pair of African criminals from the rundown Clry-sur-Bois district now supposedly going steady and doing good works in the community (aided by generous funding from the mayors office). It isnt that simple of course, and the brothers are obviously up to their necks in something, though it was surprising that Captain Laure Berthaud (Caroline Proust) charged them with murder, since the police didnt have any evidence to make the accusation stick.

But, as the shows title suggests, there are plenty of other narrative layers churning away. Berthauds team are fighting a constant battle against their temporary boss Beckriche, a devious, lying careerist happy to throw everyone else under a bus if it will help him climb another rung up the ladder. Berthaud herself, a woman constitutionally incapable of forming lasting relationships, is trying to learn how to be a mother to her dangerously premature baby daughter, including mastering the art of harvesting her own breast milk. However, having just come back to work, she can hardly bear to drag herself away from the narcotic allure of policing.

Her thuggish but solid-as-a-rock sidekick Gilou Escoffier (Thierry Godard) is dealing with personal problems of his own, and not just a bad habit of nicking stuff from crime scenes. On the positive side, his girlfriend Cindy (Fanny Valette) is traffic-stoppingly gorgeous. Unfortunately, shes still carrying on clandestine contact with her jailbird ex-boyfriend Jabril, who owes her a stack of money. Meanwhile Tintin Fromentin (Fred Bianconi), the most sensible policeman in Laures unit, is devastated because his wife is divorcing him.

It isnt only the cops who have problems. Audrey Fleurot, having escaped from the gruesome child-stealers in the recent BBC Four series Witnesses, is back on bristling form as the ruthlessly ambitious lawyer Josphine Karlsson. Keen to escape the boring corporate legal job she finds herself in, she has accepted an offer to defend a boy accused of conspiring to murder his wealthy father, but the case is threatening to blow up catastrophically in her face. And delightful as it is to meet again the charming but infinitely guileful Judge Roban (Philippe Duclos, pictured above, resembling Charlie Watts spliced with Bernie Ecclestone), it was worrying to find him having to cope with a possible brain tumour. However, it may cheer Roban up if he can prove that his boss, Procureur Machard, is implicated in the death of a gay prostitute. There are 10 more episodes in which to unpick this tangled web.
