hugely important, totally brilliant
26 September 2002 | by (nottingham, england) – See all my reviews

"Out of Control" is one of the finest pieces of work in the medium I have ever had the pleasure of watching. It is difficult to sum up the film well; my best attempt is to say that it gives as true a picture of inner city Britain today, in 2002, as could be possible. This doesn't sound that glowing a recommendation really, but judgement should be reserved until after you have seen this stunning, tragic film. The acting is truly brilliant; the characters simply live as real people, in a way that I haven't seen for a long time. The writing and dialogue is brilliant - much of it is skillfully improvised. Overall, every Briton should see this film; and really every person with any humanity.
