    Sour people and places, slapstick serial killing and reality organised crime, with a streak of hippy and folk culture, plus some charming music. An excellent ensemble cast delivers this portrait of the English criminal class, who look and sound just like anyone else you might meet in the average neighbourhood. It takes a while, but not all that long, to see them as they really are. The film is also a finely constructed, if blunt, allegory for the passage of time, the rise and fall of power, and generational change. It is delivered with sophisticated English wit, and plenty of laughs.

    Ben Wheatley made 'Down Terrace' on a budget of less than ten thousand dollars, and that's without a doubt the most remarkable thing about the film. I always love hearing about filmmakers who produced their debuts on their own dime just because it's inspiring for a person like myself. 'Down Terrace' isn't a great film, and suffers from being tonally uneven and having a sloppy, confusing ending, but its black humor, docu-drama approach and performances all work well with each other, and it definitely foreshadows the greater things to come in Wheatley's career.

    A film that kept me interested due to some interesting plot surprises and strong performances from Robin Hill and Deakin. It was a little too stop and start for me but I could certainly appreciate the skill and effort that went into making it on a tight budget and in a short space of time. A bit too 'kitchen sink' for me but I'm keen to see Wheatley's 'Kill List' and 'Sightseers' now.

    Superb, tiny budgeted film shot in sequence in one week. The performances are natural and engaging, the film looks fantastic (DP Laurie Rose is a master) and is wonderfully edited. Blackly funny and thrilling with an edge of harsh violence.
