Shane Meadows finest film by far

Also £6.79 @ HMV

Harrowing thriller about a hotwired ex-soldier (co-scripter Paddy Considine from Cinderella Man) who returns to his sleepy Midlands hometown to dole out merciless revenge upon the booze and drug-sodden hoodlums who abused his mentally handicapped younger brother (the astonishing Toby Kebbel). Director Shane Meadows (Once Upon a Time in the Midlands) doesn't shy away from delivering scenes of gripping suspense and violence, but the end result hews closer to an ambiguous meditation on the nature and effect of vengeance a la Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs than a Death Wish-style grindhouse effort. Taut and thought-provoking, Dead Man's Shoes is a must-see for indie film aficionados with a taste for the grittiest of fare. The DVD includes some rollicking commentary by Meadows, Considine, and producer Mark Herbert; an intriguing and heartfelt featurette on Meadows and his own violent past as a teenage skinhead in 1980s England, from which he drew inspiration for this film; and an alternate (and somewhat less satisfying) final scene

I've heard people say the video is the same as DVD, but the audio is improved.

every time this pops up i say "shane meadows is a freaking genius, this is a fantastic film!"

and it's worth saying again frankly
Shane Meadows is a freaking genius, this is a stunning film ;)

This is a brilliant, brilliant film. Shane meadows is highly overrated, if you took the excellent Paddy Considine out then it would be half the film it is.
#7

Brilliant film with a great twist.


Please don't tell people there's a twist in a film if there is one. It makes you think about the twist during the film and ruins things.
