Excellent sophomore film from director Ben Wheatley whose first film, Down Terrace, wowed Fantastic Fest audiences two years ago. Plays very well on the surface as a British gangster film and then goes to some wildly unexpected places and yet retains its cohesiveness and effectiveness. Great performances, deeply involving story, and a fantastic third act. Well done, sir!
