Dir. Ben Wheatley. 2009, 89 mins. Digital projection. With Robin Hill, Robert Hill, Julia Deakin. Wheatley’s corrosively funny feature debut is part gonzo gangster saga, part kitchen-sink-style family drama, part satire on both of the above. Fresh out of prison, a stoner father and son return to helming their family-run criminal enterprise—but first there are romantic complications, inter-family squabbling, and a pesky stool pigeon to contend with. Wheatley keeps things zippy and surprising, moving from irreverent hijinks to sudden eruptions of violence with a devilish audacity.
