On the other side of the British Shane Meadows has made the latest with “This Is England” attention. The autobiographical tale of a 12-year-old who makes new friends in skinhead circles has been garnered with awards (including the BAFTA Award for Best Picture of the Year).
But before that, the Briton proved his sense of interesting film concepts. He honored the spaghetti western with “Once Upon A Time In The Midlands,” for which he lured Robert Carlyle and Bob Hoskins to the camera. Now he enriches the genre of the revenge film by a sober post: “blood revenge” is despite marginal defects an interesting and interesting treatise on perpetrators and victims.
