Michael K Williams, aka Omar Little of The Wire, aka Albert ‘Chalky’ White of Boardwalk Empire gets poetic in this short film for Mr Porter. As usual, up for discussion, the question of style. Williams tells the legendary tale of the man who bet his entire life at the roulette table, red or black. With the feel of a slick aftershave advert, all moody lighting and rhetorical questions, Williams plays Williams as perfectly as ever. Commenting on the birth of his own style, “At 18 I was like, screw it, I’m gonna dress like me. I bought my first pair of penny loafers, and started wearing things like cashmere coats.” Fair play.
