5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated movie October 25, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is one of my favorite movies. A very thought-provoking film, hysterically funny and well done. I love the work of Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis (including the British tv series "Operation Good Guys") and think they're very underrated. This move is excellent on several levels. #1 It's creative and something that hasn't been done before- the concept of what people would REALLY be like if we were secretly taped (not the MTV Real World cra.p of someone losing their temper -oooh!-, getting drunk or being caught after a one night stand) but someone on the toilet, knicking a few bob from a friend, talking about disabled people, hitting his girlfriend or sticking a pool cue up his behind on a dare from friends. It's about exposing hypocrisy. In all their work Burdis and Anciano have a real flare for truly realistic characters, dialogue and situations while still bringing in some fresh air. #2. The plot is great and you don't see what's coming in the end. It unfolds beautifully I think. B&A also use the same group of actors in their work which gives their stuff an edge I think. You feel like you're sitting around with a group of friends. Make more films you guys!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Chill in Little London February 10, 2004
Format:DVD
A word of mouth film. In turn sordid, fascinating, voyeuristic and sensational. The filmmakers take the wake theme and give it a new twist. From beyond the grave, Jude Law narrates and shows a film of his friends to his friends. They are shown as cowards, cheats, petty criminals, adulterers and ultimately murderers. The end is a shocker. The acting superb, in that "fly on the wall" documentary style. Ray Whinstone steals most of his scenes. Check him out in Sexy Beast and Final Orders.

2.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed... June 27, 2005
Format:DVD
Am I the only one who didn't like this movie? Sure, it was an original idea and the revelation of how Jude died was surprising, to say the least. Still, it was very slow-moving and even though Ray Whinstone was very good and Jude Law looked as hot as ever, there wasn't much else to hold my attention. The female leads all acted as if this were the first time they had read their lines - Sadie Frost, in my opinion, was terrible! Surely they could have found some actresses who would show a little emotion and seem sincere when they did show a little emotion. So, I give this film kudos for such an original idea and the unique way in which it was filmed and presented, but otherwise, I have to give it two thumbs down :-(

5.0 out of 5 stars Finger Sandwiches... April 17, 2004
By Akethan
Format:DVD
Jude Law. Nuff said.
But really - what a bizarrely made film. Man dies, and leaves behind a film documentary that he secretly taped of all his friends in their real and private moments. It his wish that they all watch the film together at the funeral.
And then the fun & chaos begin...
How carefully Sadie, Jude's widow, sits there studying each face in the room as each friend is revealed in their naked and raw moments. As each ugly truth is pranced on the screen for all to see.
But Sadie never gives anything away.
Ray Winstone (SEXY BEAST) taught me a whole slew of new Cockney curses.

4.0 out of 5 stars For those who like word of mouth cult movies... December 5, 2010
Format:DVD
and especially British underground cult movies, check out "Final Cut" - and then "Love, Honour & Obey" (the sequel, written by the same two guys, and featuring the same set of actors). The first time I saw "Final Cut" back in 98 I was gripped by the edgy, rawness of this "reality movie" format, and the shear thought-provoking nature of the film. (I mean, who can you really trust..?) One of the reasons I think the film works so well is because the actors (in both movies) are all friends in real life and part of what's called the "Primrose Hill" set. Note too that the characters all take the names of the actors. For those who are Ray Winstone and Jude Law fans, these early performances helped launched their careers and rightly so. A great movie (if you don't have to be entertained by non-stop action, special effects, etc. and you can understand the dialogue and accents!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Did that really happen? June 25, 2005
Format:DVD
strolling though blockbuster has become an everyday occurance due to the movie pass that has come about in the last few months. when i came across this film on the shelf it seemed like and intersting conscept and turned out to be much more than i expected....

the film opens with a dedication to Jude who has passed away in October of 98. as freinds gather at his house for the reception it is evident that these are friends who were closest to him. after greeting they all move into the den where they are shown something that noone expected and/or will recover from. Jude's wife Sadie anounces that as a request by Jude she will show a tape that he had worked on for the last 2 years of his life. Sadie has already seen the tape and declares that it has comforted her through this time, which is untrue and only sets up what comes next.

when the tape begins its as you would expect this sort of thing to be. a naration by Jude and even a friendly little melody and montage to start things off. from here, though, the tape begins to reveal the true side of each person in the room, some funny, some embaracing, and some that will ruin bonds of friendship forever. it even includes a secret of Jude himself, which sets up a fanale` with a twist that will slap you square in the face.

the acting in this film is superb. to be able to pull off such a real shock, anger, disbileif, and ebarisment is a reflection of the talent of the actors on board. as you begin to learn of and know the characters you find yourself wondering, "could this be for real?"

this movie was briliantly done and one i am glad that i stumbled accross, though gets little publicity. if you do see this, and enjoy it recomend it to your friends, it might be the only time they hear of it.
