Class struggle becomes all too real as a young doctor moves into a modern apartment block in suburban 1975 London. Drugs, drink & debauchery dissolve into murder, mayhem and misogyny in this pseudo-post-apocalyptic breakdown of societal norms.Written by

Tom Hiddleston spent time with a forensic pathologist to prepare for his role since his character, Dr. Robert Laing, is a physiologist. See more »
When Laing cuts into the human head during the pathology / dissection scene, blood is shown flowing from the fresh incision. This is medically impossible, as blood ceases to flow once a person is deceased; even more so when the head has been long since detached from the rest of the body. See more »

You look at the cast . 10/10 You see the story line 09/10 You see the cinematography 09/10
We settle down , C,mon movie "entertain us" we cry.
1 hour later we just cry.
The morning after watching we are still "none the wiser" which is a great shame.
Very well made with a cast of most of my favourite Brit actors but what the hell is it all about ???? I still haven't got a clue.
Pretentious , Brit film Noir? my biggest regret is we wasted a Saturday night watching it.
My wife kept saying , "turn it off if you don't like it" but we kept thinking it would either 1) get better 2) we would eventually Get It or 3) We watched it this far so there is no point switching it off now.
