My Twenty Favourite Films Ever: #8

Well, duh.

As if this isn't a five star movie.

One of the funniest films of all-actual-time with some really heavy bits and three-dimensional characters. An intelligent and creative filmmaker behind the camera whose evidently not afraid to take risks. A script that's clearly been worked and re-worked so every single line fits together perfectly, complete with loads of callbacks both narrative and comedic. Stellar acting performances, even from people not normally known for that sort of thing (Nick Frost, Dylan Moran, etc.). A debut feature from a new director that actually has some balls and isn't some boring indie relationship dramedy. Yeah, all that stuff.

Obviously five stars.
