Alex Wheatle, the fourth film in the Small Axe series, is like a marginally upgraded rendition of your average biopic on struggle, solely because Steve McQueen is behind the camera unfolding all the conspicuous directing we’ve come to expect of him. But with that to note, it’s definitely the weakest piece of the batch so far due to its constant feelings of incompletion, but not to an extent where it should be reckoned as a misfire. That’s like… impossible to do when your Steve McQueen, ya’know?
