Romeo Brass is a schoolboy whose friendships and family are turned upsode down by the arrival of a socially inadequate misfit played by Paddy Considine who insinuates himself into his life. Another gritty real life drama from Shane Meadows typically blends domestic drama, comedy and urban violence in this in turns humorous and disturbing tale of suburban Britain. All the performances are very good and completely believable, filmed in Meadows' usual naturalistic style, and once again Paddy Considine steals the show as the unhinged Morrell who is harmless and hilarious at the outset but terrifying and creepy when he shows his true colours. My one criticism would be that the situation is resolved a little too conveniently, and as a result I was left wanting more, but a damning criticism that certainly is not. Not quite up to the standard of Dead Man's Shoes or This Is England, but a fine film nonetheless.
Another excellent film from Shane Meadows and another outstanding performance for Paddy Considine. This film manages to lure you into a false sense of security and then shocks you. Again, gritty, realistic something that seems to be a pattern for Shane Meadows.
Simply amazing. Funny, dark, innocent, violent, bizarre, sweet, surprising, shocking. Indescribable. A tour de force performance debut from Paddy Considine is the highlight of the film. Simply stunning.
