Very rarely does a film so bleak, so prone to trample over its characters until they might not come back up, manage to avoid the usual melodrama and clichés we have come to expect and instead stay an honest, unflinching and powerful glimpse of two individuals, one too hard and the other too soft for the world, just trying to make it through the day. Peter Mullan gives one of the year's most destructive and powerful performances as Joseph, a widower who spends his time drinking, picking fights and experiencing bouts of anger that tends to come crashing down into paralyzing moments of regret. We understand he wants better for himself and could use a bit of redemption but it isn't an easy thing to achieve. However, he does find some solace in Hannah played by Olivia Colman who also gives one of the year's most devastating performances as a thrift store owner and born again Christian. Joseph feels drawn to her glow and the sort of warmth he has been looking for. Sadly she isn't who she seems because behind her smile is immense pain for she lives with an abusive husband who beats her. Hannah had hoped religion could be her savior but when that didn't work she turned to alcohol. At times Hannah and Joseph can seem total opposites but yet exactly the same. As we watch their relationship develop there are brief moments of hope and even a few laughs, but for me even they are incredibly emotional and at times almost moved me to tears. Considine's exploration into violence and rage is so gut wrenching and brutally honest that when good things happen you are glad but also very cautious because moods could change without warning and this fine line they walk is hard to watch.Read more ›

Seriously... without a doubt... one of the deepest ,suspenseful, suck you into it movies I have ever seen.. This dark drama, is horrifying, sentimental, wonderful and I could go on and on.. A true test of ones emotional extremes.. Short side is I really liked it.. The acting is superb, it is 100 % believable and has NOTHING to do with pre-historic creatures, but centers on good old EMOTION. The strong dialect, is challenging at times to understand, but to me added such a fine quality to the production.. I never watch a movie twice, but the button at h u l u said replay, and I hit it.. The second time around I understood the words alot better..

Some people (possibly too many of us) do wake up on a daily basis to extremely tormented lives. I appreciate the film's unapologetic realism that life, despite good intentions and best efforts, is simply life. Human beings are strong and frail and perverse. We're naturally offensive, and will break the rules designed to keep us morally and socially controlled. We snap and break under the pressure of our own demons and the insanity of those around us. We love and we hurt even when we claim indifference. We devolve and we evolve, swimming rebelliously and furiously against the strength of life's undercurrents. We go through cycles of progression and regression, climbing and falling over and over again. In our most secretive places, we're simply human. This film is not about animal cruelty, alcoholism, domestic violence, race wars, class wars, or living in a past that is lost in the present. This film is about how we are bound one to the other in the strangeness of oddly-shaped pieces that fit together to tell one of an infinite number of stories that weave and interlock in the puzzle of life.

While watching this intense movie I came to understand some of the negative reviews posted online here, even as I wholeheartedly disagreed with them. Yes, the movie starts out with the central, widowed character kicking his dog, carrying it home, and watching it die, as the animal stares reproachfully at his drunken master. And yes, a woman is pissed on, as she feigns sleep on the family sofa. Letting us know from the outset what her life is like at the hands of her abusive husband (not the same guy). The scenes are brutal, yet altogether honest. Bleak to be sure, yet somehow it all works out in the end. Not in some nice, tidy Hollywood manifestation, mind you. But certainly in how the real world works. Sure, the main character is hard to watch at times, as he rages against the world, but if you stick it out until the end you'll be rewarded for the effort. He does indeed feel remorse for his terrible deed, and tries to mend his ways, but in the end the story comes full circle. Can't tell you more without ruining the startling ending. Amazing performances by the two lead actors. I can't recommend this one highly enough. Loved it so much I went ahead and purchased the dvd.

This is not a children's movie. Bad people are bad, and the most you can hope for is a cessation of their bad acts, and not some predictable Hollywood redemption of their soul. Peter Mullen is, as usual, fabulous at portraying a down-and-out man on the edge of society. The only weakness in the script is how seldom the 'F' word is used. The movie should open with a full-screen shot of the '18+' icon, while Peter Mullen says the 'F' word repeatedly for 60 seconds uninterrupted, just to encourage the crybabies and idiots from Texas to turn off their TeeVees. If your world is all sunshine and lollipops, and your feelings are hurt by mean people and bad language, this film is not for you, and you should download a nice Hollywood rom-com to entertain you until your next trip to the big blue Big-box store to buy sheep chow.
