I finally got around to seeing Filth on Monday 4 November and I would be failing in my duties if I didn't do a short blog post to say that this film is just brilliant and, if you get a chance to go and see it, you really should! It shook me to the core and I would argue it is a must-see. James McAvoy is absolutely riveting as Bruce Robertson in the lead role. Get your tickets in now!

Short synopsis of Filth, taken from the film's official website:

Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson wants a promotion. He is clearly the best man for the job - the rest of his colleagues are just idiots.

Annoyingly, there's been a murder and Bruce's boss wants results. No problem for Bruce. He's in control and when he solves the case and wins the promotion, his wife will return to him. No problem.

But is life that simple? Is Bruce the man he really thinks he is? The tragic, hilarious and memorable answers unfold in FILTH...


My Twitter review:

LOVED @FilthTheMovie :) Funny. Engrossing. Mesmerising. Dark (very!). Disturbing. Thought-provoking. And boy it packs a punch! #FILTH
