Tyrannosaur – 8/10 (Second viewing)

Powerful urban deprivation themed drama from writer/director Paddy Considine. Taking his cues from long time collaborator Shane Meadows, Tyrannosaur does not flinch from its overriding motif of bullying and domestic violence and is frequently a difficult watch. Peter Mullan and Olivia Colman are both extraordinary and lift this well directed fable from solid début to a minor classic. Unrelentingly bleak but a great film that I found even more powerful second time round.
