    A slick, clever, well shot thriller. Almost everything about this film works, and works well. Danny Boyle, trés bien! The great sweeping shot that reveals just who was the quickest, is pure genius. Just great

    Shallow Grave is a very well shot and acted movie from British director Danny Boyle. The cast is great
    with Ewen Mcgregor from Trainspotting. The plot is very clever and the movie has a nice Hitchcockian
    feel to it. The story is unpredictable and it will become one of your favourite movies.

    All of the materials are in place for a film that might have pleased Orwell. But somehow they never come together.
