Trivia

In early 2009, Vincenzo Natali was attached to write and direct this movie. In late 2010, he was joined by Richard Stanley, who helped him writing a new draft of the script which Natali was very happy with, but in the end was not produced. See more »

Goofs

At one point there's a car right outside the building with a clearly made-up number plate. Something like DAE 080X. The leading zero is incorrect, X is 1981 (the film is set in the 1970s) and the number plate font is the newer post-2001 one. A shame as the effort to amass all the cars must have been huge.

Quotes

Laing: You know, Toby, when I was your age, I was always covered in something. Mud, jam, failure... My father never associated himself with anything dirty. Or real.
Toby: My father's up there.
Laing: You mean, in heaven?
Toby: Heaven isn't real, stupid.

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.
