Critic Reviews for The End
Inevitably, this is a sympathetic, one-sided film and its familiar perspective is a nostalgic, sometimes tiresome one that imagines a 'golden age' when grannies could leave their doors open at night.
The film is a flavourful record of what is - as the interviewees are well aware - a vanishing culture, but it doesn't dig deep.
A deliberately distressed and scratchy documentary of talking heads, sporting the same sinister techno score and added subtitles for non-cockneys.
The flesh-crawling thrill is that these stories about armed robberies, ghastly fights, and grisly murders are utterly compelling.
Audience Reviews for The End
Somehow this documentary lost passion as it went along. The first three stories were heart wrenching. The last two? Elusive.
