REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..There is a far better contemporary UK Western than this, with antagonists that have a shred of humanity and without awkward social commentary: Shane Meadows's Dead Man Shoes..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]
“..for all the gruesome death scattered around, the movie really has social ills in its sights..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
“..Part punk-drab British art-house portrait of underclass despair, part bloody vigilante pic, Harry Brown is shakily held together by industrial-strength sound design and the expertly employed theatrics of Michael Caine in the title role..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
