as it says on the cover ' one of the best british films in years'By Brian Bennett from London , 21 Dec 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]in fact i think i would probably go as far as saying, this is one of the best films i have seen in years.....full stop. now i understand its not going to be everyones cup of tea, but for those out there who like a great film with some good old fashioned brit-grit watch it! it's one of those films where you dont quite know what to do with yourself after it. i mean i watched this film and thought it was great 3 days after watching it, i thought it was amazing - reason being, i kept on thinking about it, it kept on coming back into my head, i think i was a bit traumatised by it to be honest, but if that isnt the sign of a good film i dont know what is.
full of grit and grim, very good acting, and a bit of humor thrown in....watch this!

why you should watch this.......By kerry75 (1 review) , 17 Dec 2013Put this on your to do list, shopping list and bucket list! If you remember how you felt the first time you saw Taxi driver, be prepared for that similar feeling. An outstanding peice of work. I could not stop thinking about this film for days. The subtle mix of humour carefully placed in certain scenes was perfect. Paddy Considine was pure class. This is one of the best roller coasters i have been on. I say that because Dead Mans Shoes will have you experiencing the highs and lows, the twist and turns of a thrilling ride. A first class watch!
British film at it's bestBy Djata (3 reviews) , 29 Nov 2013Brutal, visceral and beautifully crafted. The film has a stark realism with a magnificent script and genuinely talented performances. Equally moving and disconcerting.
DEAD MANS SLIPPERS (dont know why I put that!?)By HonestKen (9 reviews) , 01 Nov 2013Would go as far as to say 'best film I have ever seen......EVER!' (need more characters) ...EVER & EVER!!..AND EVER!!

A film about guilt and ignoranceBy Fred500 (1 review) , 28 Oct 2013Stunning, when I say stunning I mean I felt absolutely numb after seeing this. Not an easy watch but the best of British indy movies. Great performances by all, but Toby Kebbell and Paddy Considine are brilliant. Not one for Saturday night and popcorn but if you like serious story telling it might be one for you. I have not seen anything as intense since I first saw Taxi driver, with a very young Robert De Niro many years ago.
A must!By a customer , 09 Oct 2013This movie took me completely by surprise; I dont mean the twists in the movie, but the tone and the highs & lows. The film just showcases british acting talent and theres emotional moments that hit you even harder than some of the more violent scenes. Like most 'twist' movies this can only be watched once to take on the full power of the movie, but even on a second viewing you take it all in on a different level. This is a dark movie, very violent but with some of the best comedy moments and emotional scenes Ive ever seen in a movie - the acting talent is undeniable! A bucket list movie for sure.
