This review is from: Dead Man's Shoes [DVD]  (DVD)
A deeply disturbing and at times hilarious film that crosses multiple genres. Astounding realism and chilling to the bone. Paddy Considine as Richard is simply breath-taking in his acting ability; in fact it is true for this film that Paddy IS Richard. Gary Stretch is excellent as Sonny and his villain is eminently believable. The rest of the cast are also brilliant and make the film an experience in itself. When you also consider that half of the cast are not professional actors you wil realise what an achievement this is. Toby Kebbel, a new face, is brilliant as Anthony; Richards brother with learning disability. I shan't go into any detail as that would spoil this amazing brit-flick, all I can say is get this DVD, you'll want to keep it and see it again and again. The images and characters will stay with you long after the film is over. In my opinion the best film I have seen in a very long time, if not the best film I have ever seen. Rent it, buy it but whatever you do this year - see this film.
