Tyrannosaur (Paddy Considine, 2011)


As heart-warming as it is heart-breaking as it is spine-chilling, Tyrannosaur is an exquisite balance of realist cinematography with expert performances from every actor involved, to create create unbearable tension and release in an environment so regularly characterised by a sense of grim inevitability. Thus, both the representations of horror and of love work together to pierce the barrier of preconceptions in a world of social immobility to deliver a tale of redemption – no matter how meagre that redemption may be.
