Reviews

Komische misdaadfilm, het regiedebuut van acteur Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting), die ook de hoofdrol speelt, naast Emma Thompson en Ray Winstone. Vijftiger Barney Thomson is kapper in Glasgow en leidt een saai leven, genegeerd door iedereen, inclusief zijn uitbundige moeder (Thompson). Wanneer hij bij een ruzie per ongeluk zijn baas doodt, komt hij in het vizier van inspecteur Holdall (Winstone) die wanhopig op zoek is naar een seriemoordenaar. Robbie Collin (Telegraph.co.uk) geeft 4 sterren: 'That unexpected mix of sensation and substance gives The Legend of Barney Thomson a grisly cult appeal (...) This is pulp with the seeds left in, and you’ll be picking them from between your teeth for weeks.' Winnaars van Schotse Bafta's voor Beste actrice en Beste film.
