Beats anything I've seen from Leigh, Frears, Loach or Clarke. Buy it. It's a work of art, mannn.

...I don't believe. But that's got me all excited to want to watch it.

Garam has a point. It's pretty hot stuff. Bernard Hill does give a blinding performance.
Anyone seen the other British TV classic "Our Friends In The North"?
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115305/
It does the social realism thing pretty brilliantly with pitch perfect performances from Chris Eccleston, Daniel Craig, Gina McKee and Mark Strong.
I urge anyone to seek it out.

I recently went to spain and got some top notch quality bootleg DVD's:
Borat
Casino Royale (For My Dad)
The Black Dahlia
and
Babel (this being the only shitty one shot in a theatre)

I also recently ordered Gus Van Sant's Elephant
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

Just like the discounted seasons of 24, I couldn't pass these up:

“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

It cheers me up to see people digging the ol' Ratcatcher.  I love that movie.

Recently, I bought a used Criterion of Do The Right Thing.

And, with Deep Discount DVD's Buy 1 Get 1 Free deal, Newsradio Seasons 3 and 4.
