    That is a nearly impossible question, but I would choose Danny Boyle's 'Shallow Grave.' This film is driven by a perfectly symbiotic relationship between proficient acting, a great script, beautiful cinematography and, above all, masterful direction. Boyle utilizes a brilliant contrast between physical colour and emotional tone: the darkest scenes happen in a spacious, flowery, brightly lit, and vibrantly coloured apartment. The emotional and mental degradation of the characters is accentuated by a score that is reminiscent of Kubrick’s ‘A…

    L'ipercinetico Danny Boyle contamina la commedia nera inglese con ammazzamenti efferati, litri di sangue e gore (anche se fuori quadro),
    dove il gioco è a perdere, e i tre giovanotti bombe pronte ad esplodere.
    Leftfield nella colonna sonora.

    Three flatmates find their fourth dead from an overdose with a suitcase of money under the bed. Rather than call the police they dispose of the body, and then start spending and turning on each other.

    Danny Boyle's debut film is a triumph. An homage to Scorsese and the Coens while being wholly its own animal. Any plot holes that exist are paved over with an energy that few thrillers can match. For a debut, it's as incendiary as Tarantino's…

    After watching Trainspotting the other night, I was so pumped by how much I liked that movie that I wanted to see more of Danny Boyle. So my choice was his directorial debut Shallow Grave, and man it was a right choice.

    This is a movie with a pretty basic plot but is delivered at perfection, with great performances (Ecclestone in particular), fantastc camerawork, and an excellent pace. Unfortunatelly it was a little too predictable, but still very enjoyable.

    Saw again with friends. Very satisfying Hitchcockian slow-burn thriller.

    When this was released I couldn’t see what all the fuss was about: it was an efficient, slick thriller (very slick for a British film), set in a very cool apartment, but finally not that interesting. Since then Danny Boyle has become a phenomenon, often critically acknowledged as the leading British filmmaker of his generation, while some of his films are immensely popular – in a poll of audiences’ favourite Channel 4 films (the TV Channel 4 bankrolling much of…

    An absolutely electric first film from director Danny Boyle. His style and touch is so clear from this picture, and it really makes me sad coming out of Jobs this year. 

    The score, the acting, the camera work -- it's all just so fun. 

    It's not much new in terms of story or theme I believe, sort of shallow if you will. But it's incredibly entertaining and layered, even if it's not particularly unique.
