If anyone here has seen this film, can they remember the name of the Nottinghamshire town in which it was set? For some reason it's bugging me to death that I can't remember it!

www.imdb.com was no help either, sadly.

WOW Dead Man's Shoes just knocked me sideways. absolutley brutal but it possessed a certain beauty that can come out of that. it upset me a fair bit though. proof (if we still needed it) that you don't need monsters to scare an audience because people are scary enough.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS:

the long B&W scene where you see what happened to Anthony must be amongst the most powerful things i've ever seen in a film. the religious analogies are never overplayed they hit home nevertheless. great use of choral music.

the scene after they take the drugged tea i had to watch from behind a cushion, great use of music in this one too - that drone reverbing through the entire scene and heightening the sense of disorientation and panic. absolutely incredible.

i liked that last one that was funded by eurostar, well until the ending anyway, but that new one, le donk and scorzayzee is pretty so-so. the people i saw it with liked it but for a supposed docu-comedy about aspiring rappers, it wasnt thaaat funny, and this might sound odd, but the guy rapping was almost too good to be laughed at.

Has anybody been watching his C4 show, "The Virtues"?

would have to be paid handsomely to watch anything by Meadows ever again.

This was something, grim as fuck but with some really remarkable naturalistic acting and what I assume was a lot of unscripted dialogue. The first episode featured probably the most realistic depiction of a drunken bender I've ever seen, felt hungover after it. The rest didn't quite live up to that opener
