Caught this on iTunes last night, and wanted to write about it. Was searching for Peter Mullan films I hadn't yet seen (am big fan). Thought this film looked like a "yeah Brov" sort of film, but gave it a go. Glad I did, cos it was a really good film. Not amazing like Peter's own films, but he was great in it (as usual).
I did a bit of research after watching the film and I can see how it was biographical. It definitely feels very raw in places. If i had a criticism I'd say it could have done with some quieter moments, as its pretty full-on. But I don't mind that too much. the other actors are good, especially the lead guy, who I hadn't seen before. Overall, I gave it 7/10. its a lot better than most of the Brit films I've seen, and another brilliant performance from my favourite actor.
