Woah, that was intense.

I’ve just finished watching This Is England ’86, Shane Meadows’ follow-up to his mighty 2006 original, arguably the finest Britflick of the past decade.  If some aspects of the resolution didn’t match the astonishing work beforehand, it remains a startling piece of television and a worthy successor to the film.

Here’s my review of the series (written prior to watching tonight’s ep, for pesky deadline reasons), over at Moviemail.
