Dead Man's Shoes


This is one of my favorite revenge films. It is not a pleasant film to watch at all. Not for its violence, which is generally off screen, but for the raw pain of Paddy Considine as a soldier who fled his mentally challenged brother and comes home to wreak havoc on the local trash who've been tormenting him. No film captures the roots of guilt and shame in vengeance as good as this one.
