I believe this to be Shane Meadows' best film by some distance.
Yes, This Is England is good, but I think it loses it's way half way through.
This, on the other hand is gripping all the way through.
It has humour as well as quite explicit violence, but it's the story that really gets you.
There is a twist at the end, which you will possibly see coming, but this won't ruin the film for you if you do.
A high quality British film made with a small budget. Brilliant
