While he's hardly the British cinema's Thomas Hardy, the Nottinghamshire film-maker Shane Meadows has developed a relationship to his own locality that is rare. Only Bill Forsyth, who, for a while, was the Capra of the Clyde, comes to mind. The underside of small-town Midlands life and the underclass that lives on rundown council estates have provided the subject matter for all his films. Dead Man's Shoes is his most accomplished, though it retains the harsh feeling and rough surface of its predecessors. It begins mysteriously, portentously, with two youngish men walking purposefully over moorland under a lowering sky. Their progress is intercut with home movies of children playing.
