Oh dear! What a mess and such a missed opportunity. The episodic script fails to convince as anything but melodrama and if you're looking for chemistry I suggest you head back to school as the onscreen relationship between Naomi Watts (Diana) and Naveen Andrews (Khan) is stone cold and clunky.
The wife liked it.
Not an F1 fan, nor am I a lover of sports in general but this film is great. The two central performances are both effortless in their greatness and the actors play off each other well. Morgan's script is great and Howard keeps the whole thing buzzing along at a tremendous pace.
I am really surprised by how much I liked this film.
Wow! Now here's a film that lets the viewer think for a change. A brilliant piece of writing and a cracking ensemble headed-up by a terrifically fearless performance from James McAvoy.
Given that it's based on a book by Irvine Welsh there are bound to be comparisons to Danny Boyle's adaptation of Trainspotting but rest assured, Filth holds its own.
