Real life horror in your living room
Member Name: moggym
Advantages: Great slice of real life
Disadvantages: What no dinosours
When I purchased this film I knew nothing about it apart from it was about dinosours and was directed by Paddy Considine one of my favourate British actors, if you havent seen him before I would recommend watching "Dead Mans Shoes" or "A Room For Romeo Brass" both great films.
Firstly there are no dinosours so the title and cover are a bit misleading.
This film is hard hitting and very sad at points with a sprinkle of humour thrown in aswel.
Unlike Horror movies the monsters in this film are sad little men who make other peoples life unbearable, The main characters are played by Peter Mullan and Olivia Coleman, both of which put in tremendous perfomances making this film very believable, Peter Mullan's character goes around being nasty to everyone he meets until he meets up with a religous woman working in a charity shop and strikes up an unusual freindship with.
This film is about the horrors in some peoples lives that a lot of people know goes on but would rather pretend it doesn't. some scenes are very upsetting be prepaired for a roller coaster of emotions as the real life of your neighbour, friend or mabie even family member gets brought to life in your living room.
Summary: Best British film 2011
