5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 28 July 2013
This review is from: Red Riding Trilogy [DVD] (DVD)
Quite simply put, this was one of the most brilliant things british television has produced in the last fifteen or so years. Though much credit must be passed to David Peace for the fabulous quartet of books, on which this is based, the scriptwriters and directors have done a fantastic job in both slimming this down to a trilogy and evoking so wholly the era in which this was set. It should be noted that while there were three different directors involved, one for each feature length, the plot and character development does not suffer.

The quality of the acting and the production is first class, and the storyline is both gripping and (given many recent revelations about police collusions with the establishment) believable albeit grim.

This is a superb LP. There is not a weak song on the album, and the whole affair is wonderfully paced.

Ignore the 'emo' tag ascribed to this band - they are far from it- as this is just a lazy dismissal. This is just good 'alternative' (if one must label) song-writing, more in vain with post-punk/hardcore, latterday Fugazi (but more catchy).
