Rather Depressing Fair...Now Where Did I Put That Cut-Throat Razor?
27 August 2017 | by omendataSee all my reviews

In an age of despair and poverty why is it the film makers continue to churn out desperately sad and lugubrious movies like these I don't know!

Yes the film explores what its like to be unemployed with a wife and kids losing your house and the need for some to resort to crime , I have been there myself but its not really the sort of movie I want to be watching.

Maybe its just me but i want to come out of the cinema like I used to in what i call the good old days when you came out feeling enervated , uplifted and positive about life.

If you are into this sort of depressing , dull and real life scenario then I guess you will enjoy it but for me its too close to home and doesn't leave the viewer with a positive outlook on life, so if you are depressed and sad or your life isn't going well I wouldn't watch this as you may be reaching for the razor!
