I just watched Late Night Shopping, and I have to say that it's one of the most refreshing and enjoyable films that I've watched in a long time. And, working in a video shop, I guess that's saying something. This film shows a situation that could only possibly arise in the late 20th century, with our 24 hour consumer driven world. Not that that's the point of the film, I just thought that it was intresting. Anyway, the film is funny, the script's fairly intelligent, and the acting, while not excellent, is fairly good. I should note that this is the kind of film that you'd almost only ever see made in Britain. There are plenty of nice little touches in the film. The way that the city that they live in is never named, and just appears completely bog-standard, compared to the specific location of the town at the end shows how their life has fallen into such a routine.

This film might not go onto the 100 greatest films of all time, but it was certainly enjoyable, and what more can you ask than that?
