The End

Critics Consensus

An eye-opening, if one-sided and reverential, talking-heads doc about London's "Wild East" candidly told by the hard men gangsters themselves.

Critic Reviews for The End

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (2)

  • 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.

  • Intentionally or not, Nicola Collins's filmed interviews with various old-school East End geezers give us a fair idea of their sentimentality, paranoia, smugness and flashes of humour.

  • The film is a flavourful record of what is - as the interviewees are well aware - a vanishing culture, but it doesn't dig deep.

    May 7, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A movie that is non-judgmental to the point of celebration.

    May 7, 2009 | Full Review…
  • A deliberately distressed and scratchy documentary of talking heads, sporting the same sinister techno score and added subtitles for non-cockneys.

    May 1, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The flesh-crawling thrill is that these stories about armed robberies, ghastly fights, and grisly murders are utterly compelling.
