Sightseers (Ben Wheatley, 2012)
« on: 19 Mar 2013 - 22:01 »

I saw this gem tonight. It's a bizarre black comedy from the director of DOWN TERRACE and KILL LIST about a pair of socially inept 30-somethings whose caravan holiday turns into a killing spree. It's darkly funny, brilliantly written and beautifully shot. Funny as hell too. Well worth checking out.

Same here and I only watched it last night. Just started laughing a moment ago in the kitchen thinking about the crotchless knickers she lays out on the bed and realising that they were knitted. By her.  :-\

And the bit where it shows her mother lying at the foot of the stairs pressing her panic alarm...

Down Terrace is good but probably Wheatley's weakest, not that it's bad, it's very good, his films just get better and better. SIGHTSEERS is his best, IMO.

Just watched this after reading everyone's positive reviews here... really enjoyed it too. Very funny with flawless performances throughout (even the dog). Nuts In May gone bad!

Watched it last night.  It's excellent, a cross between Mike Leigh's NUTS IN MAY and NATURAL BORN KILLERS. As with Wheatley's terrific KILL LIST, there's quite a bit going on with the characters which keeps you thinking about it long after the final credits have rolled.  Will have to watch DOWN TERRACE now.  Ben Wheatley's a talent worth keeping an eye on.  Hopefully, he'll make a few more 'low budget' gems before he inevitably tries his luck in Hollywood.
