    This is another of my all time favourite british films.



    This film moved me so much when I first saw it I had visions of it in my head for days.



    Great performances from Ray Winstone & Kathy Burke.



    If you have never seen this film then do yourself a favour and go get it.

    To my shame I have always jibbed at watching Nil By Mouth as it just sounded so incredibly depressing. Maybe I will try and bite the bullet next time I have the opportunity. I'm quite surprised, given the good reviews it got, that Gary Oldman hasn't done more directing.

    It's a terribly difficult film to watch. Well done, but deeply unpleasant.



    It should come with a warning you'll need a lie down when it's over.

    Great film! Well written and certainly well performed by a superb cast.



    Look forward to seeing more from the talented Gary Oldman.

    I'm surprised, too. I remember a few years ago reading an interview where he talked about how much he enjoyed directing, how he borrowed a lighting technique John Cassavetes used in "Killing of a Chinese Bookie" for "Nil By Mouth," etc.



    "Batman" pays the bills obviously, but Gary's certainly capable of far better things.

    Nil by Mouth . . . a chilling film but so perfectly done.



    Gary even got a fantastic performance from his sister Laila Morse - something I thought would be impossible judging by her work on Eastenders.

    I felt the same way.



    A brilliant film but it's realism makes it very tough going for the viewer.

    Not a film that I could watch too many repeats of.

    Ray Winstone said he needed a lie down afterwards.

    Ray Winstone & Kathy Burke. Maybe not glamorous but they're both very talented actors

    that is a little naughty, but most people know the subject matter before watching it.

    yep he said he "bought himself the most expensive piece of moving art" (or something like that) with all his Hollywood money. This instantly made me forgive him for all sorts of drek. The Good Shephard was good but what is DeNiros excuse for the pap he was in I wonder? Surely Bob had more friends with money than Gazza. Gazza also said making this was "playing with th big train set" which I liked.

    Drunk scenes are supposedly notoriously difficult to get from actors. Not from Big Ray when he's alone in the house after the carnage already spolied above. Stunning.
