This review is from: Face [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a great sleeper. Given great reviews on release. Shown on TV and then takes ages to appear on DVD.
This has everything that you could wish for in a good crime caper. A plot that keeps you guessing. Atmospheric settings. A good backstory and romance.
The acting is superb from the entire cast - including Damon Albarn. The script flies along and you sympathise with the frustrations and desires of Robert Carlyle. From his misspent life to his annoyance of the need to carry his backward friend through life.
You empthasise with the lives of the characters. Winstone and Vaughan are absolutely superb in their portrayal.
Rent it, buy it but definitely see it.
