The Guard 2011 ★★★★

One of those small films that almost slipped under the radar... I only got it because Mark Kermode said it was good and I like Brendan Gleeson. Good job too as this is his film. It's a gentle but occasionally gritty crime thriller that relies on dialogue instead of car chases. Eire looks gorgeous and the cast are all excellent. If you can get past the sometimes quite thick accents then this is worth watching. Oh, and it has Mark Strong as a bad guy. He does that a lot...
