With its grimy sets, taut storyline, and relentless sense of doom, London to Brighton is an auspicious directorial debut by Paul Andrew Williams.

Its tautness is satisfying. Not one line of dialogue is superfluous, not one take is a second too long.
From the near-hysteria of this compelling opening sequence, Paul Andrew Williams's taut, tough and thoroughly satisfying drama grips the viewer and never lets go until its brutal, surprising conclusion.
A gritty British gangster film that leaves a bitter aftertaste, Paul Andrew Williams' London to Brighton is as technically assured as it is ultimately superfluous.
The film is a calling card for its sure-handed rookie director, Paul Andrew Williams, who expertly turns up the suspense knob while establishing a thick sense of doom amid grimy settings.
Very good but very grim, Paul Andrew Williams' punishing debut doesn't pull many punches -- although the characters certainly field their share of body blows.
I'm not entirely sure what [director Williams] was trying to pull off in London to Brighton or even if Mr. Williams knew what he was trying to pull off.
Compelling at times, but material seems exploitive.
Gritty, hellish inner city underworld excursion segue into incidental commuter crime thriller, featuring an unlikely surrogate maternal figure accessory to pedophilia street hooker's redemptive conversion to preteen protectress with a heart of gold.

It's a chase movie and the tension never lets up. Paul Andrew Williams' well observed gritty thriller differs from most British crime films in that the setting isn't the usual dour and brutal crims but a pimp who procures young girls
At the London Critics Circle film awards last year, Lorraine Stanley was nominated for British Actress of the Year, and if you see London to Brighton, you'll easily understand why.
English actor-turned-filmmaker Paul Andrew Williams made a striking writing and directing debut with this character-driven thriller, which plays out against a backdrop of desperation, self-loathing and grinding poverty.
Exceptional!!! Without doubt one of the best films that I have watched in a long time. A gritty, true to life storyline with very natural performances, particularly from the two main characters. This film held me from the get go and never failed to grab my attention throughout. Quite a frightening reality, which makes it a sensational Drama.
This is a film that should be on everyone's "must see" list (or at the very least every Brit's "must see" list).
I can't recall the last time a film had such a visceral impact on me. Coming out of the cinema after watching "London to Brighton" I felt my senses reeling and the adrenalin pumping as if I had just stepped off a particularly fiendish theme park ride.
There's a grim nastiness running throughout this story, interwoven with a thin thread of maternal compassion. Life is hard and hopeless for these people. They have few choices open to them. Their environment is sordid and gloomy. Even the seaside resort of Brighton is cold, windy and desolate.
But what lifts the audience out of what might otherwise be a depressing experience is the storyline which builds excitement and fear to the point where my friend felt he had to get up and actually leave the auditorium! Without revealing the plot, I can say that had he stayed, the final scene ? which in no way strays from the noir ? would have rewarded his perseverance.
The cast turn in convincing performances and Georgia Groome is excellent as the young runaway.
Although this is a totally disgusting film in what is happening, it's very interesting and gripping to see what is happening and is going to happen to these people. It makes you realise what people really go through on the streets and how difficult and horrible it really is. It was uncomfortable but enlightening to watch.
A good if gritty, raw film film about a runaway girl and a prostitute she befriends trying to get away from a small time gangster. Very short but it makes a big impact, although it was getting predictable towards the end. Great film for a shoe string budget.
