Shane Meadows' debut short film, 'Where's the Money, Ronnie?', tells a succinct, simple story - four men are interviewed by the police in the aftermath of a grotty, small town murder. There's not much story, not much in the way of fancy camera work either - but what does come to light is Meadows' ability to make human characters out of reprehensible losers, including the eponymous Ronnie, played by Meadows himself. The use of black and white was carried over into his first feature, 'TwentyFourSeven'. I might not have tipped him for greatness of the basis of this, but others did - and the result is one the best catalogues of modern British film.
