A Powerful And Emotionally-Striking Low-Budget Masterpiece
One of the most effective and emotionally-striking films to have come out of Britain in the last decade, talented indie auteur Shane Meadows has created another masterpiece with 'Dead Man's Shoes'. A gritty and unsettling tale of revenge set amidst a small Northern England town rife with small-time drug dealers and criminals. 'Dead Man's Shoes' truly shows Paddy Considine's acting talent as the grief-stricken brother who has returned home to settle the score with the guys who brutalised his simple-minded brother and sent him into a life of chaos. This is truly a powerful and emotional tale that I cannot get out of my head, one that lingers in your mind. A film definitely to be watched (if you can handle the depressing tone), Shane Meadows has created an utter masterpiece of British cinema.
