I've often wondered about the impact that murder has had on Meadows' work and that interview adds a horrifying new dimension to it. Possibly no coincidence that Lol's sexually abusive dad looks a lot like Robert Black, either.

Fairly intense (though good natured) interview with Meadows from The Observer: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/may/05/shane-meadows-interview-the-virtues-stephen-graham-trauma

 

You should add that to the interesting reads thread, I'm not sure interesting is quite the right word but it's definitely something other people should read!

I’ve recorded this but I am worried about watching it. Is it gruelling?

Fantastic series.

 

Of course, endings like that allow you to write your own continuations.

 

Don’t worry guys, she got away with it! ^_^

Just binged this tonight, fook me - I cant remember watching anything that flew by so quickly and yet was so powerful while also being riveting to watch.

What a whisky chaser this is after Chernobyl. It's so refreshing to see some grown-up TV where you're invited to fill the gaps with your own interpretation. The way it gradually reveals, and unravels, is sublime. There's a palpable tension in every scene; almost unbearable at times but compelling nevertheless.

 

I now need to go watch everything Shane Meadows has ever done.

A room for Romeo Brass is easily the equal of those two. 

 

The man is a master.
