Rock roadie and failed musician, Le Donk (Paddy Considine) is a f*@k up. He's lost his girlfriend (Olivia Colman) and his life has turned to s*@t. So Donk sets out to see if he can make rap prodigy Scor-zay-zee (playing himself) a star and turn his own life around (with a little help from the Arctic Monkeys). Meadows' hilarious rockumentary follows the duo on a journey of a lifetime; an unpredictable, irrepressible ode to spontaneous filmmaking.

Le Donk is an own goal from Shane Meadows. Lacking the necessary development and thought process you're left with what seems to be a pilot for a television series and not a good prospect at that. The characters are interesting but are left to pursue mundane activities whilst waiting for the gig. The documentary within a documentary has been done far more effectively elsewhere. Fans expecting plenty of Arctic Monkey's footage will be disappointed as blink and you'll miss their brief cameo appearances.
