    This might have been the most uncomfortable cinema experience I've ever taken on, yet there were indeed parts that were amusing, human and very well-made. My leg also went stiff. And the reason why it was uncomfortable was because, while I didn't shed much tears at the small lack of surprise I got from this film (since it is what people would consider a typical Ken Loach story which doesn't end nicely), it is meant to be a worst case…

    I really hope I don't end up sounding heteronormative here. I'm completely gay and I want to ensure anybody reading that I am analysing the emotions of everyone.

    Well, so many characters, so many arseholes. Delivered in good taste, a great form of storytelling (better than Shutter Island the previous night) and in some cases, sympathy, even though the coke-infused emotional connection proves to be false, replaced by moaning of being forced out of a life of crime and goes into divorce. Good, old yet mean caption endings.

    A special shoutout to the technical side, especially the sound mixers. Never has a gangster film sound so entertaining and enchanting. And fantastic improv with the famous steadicam shot. Why on Earth did my college tutors not teach me that?
