A room for Romeo Brass

Just watched it tonight.

 

Fantastic film again by Shane Meadows. Much more lighthearted than dead man's shoes and has so many sweet moments - the banter between romeo and knock knock, as well as the unintentional humour of Morrell's character but with the dark undercurrents of small town, seemingly old industry, society.

 

Quite the contrary to Dead Man's shoes though, which also has family issues and closure of them as one of the core plots, this film sees Consadine's characters violent tendancies beyond the control of his emotional control.

 

Consadine and meadows have delivered two of my favourite films and comparisons with Scorcese and De Niro are that close to the mark that only legendary status is the paper thin difference.

 

I love how the director lets the characters breathe in his films
