Anyone a fan of his work? I've only seen Dead Man's Shoes and This Is England but I loved them both. Dead Man's Shoes is probably in my top 5 favourite films.

Can anyone recommend any of his other films or something similar? I've heard good things about A Room for Romeo Brass.

Dead mans shoes is one of the best films ever I reckon.


Room for Romeo Brass is a good movie too, not as good as This is England or DMS though.

Shane Meadows is one of those crappy directors that people only like because they feel obliged to like British films even though they suck.


Me? Deliberately confrontational? Never.


Seriously though, I've seen Dead Man's Shoes and wasn't all that impressed.

Couldn't agree more.

Romeo Brass is brilliant too.

Seriously, don't even try and question him, he'll rip your face off with his awesomeness alone.

I lovd Dead Man's Shoes, thought it was one of the bleakest and darkest films I've seen, brilliant.

Meths, just so you know, I watched that - and loved it - before I knew of Meadows' reputation. The same goes for This Is England.

But I've heard he's had one or two failures, Once Upon a Time in the Midlands is meant to be a bit shit.

Damn, I didn't know that. I'll remember to think about that next time I think I may have enjoyed one of his films.

Anyway................

I always use Dead Man's Shoes as an example of the contrast between British and American cinema. Revenge story, whatshisface kills about three people in Dead Man's Shoes, not a lot of violence or explosions. The Punisher, dude kills like a billion people and makes witty comments afterwards, lots of violence and explosions.

The Punisher was way better.

I believe the word is "cue" and no, that would've been when I said this:

it did raise some interesting questions and i was curious about his relationship with his brother

i think a lot of it was rage over the guilt he had for running off with the marines for 10 years. and also for maybe not valuing him enough when he was alive.

Once you know that Richard saw Anthony as an embarrassment it puts a whole different spin on the film, especially the scene where they're sat reminiscing on the tyres. The film is far more than just mindless killing (if it wasn't you'd have seen him take an axe to his first victims head). Paddy Considine is a great actor and he's particularly good in this.
