Christopher Eccleston excels in this darkly delicious thriller about a flatshare gone wrong.
Dir Danny Boyle
With Christopher Eccleston, Ewan McGregor, Kerry Fox
As the era of Blair and Britpop came into view, director Danny Boyle made his first feature with the darkly delicious crime thriller Shallow Grave. The backdrop is 90s Edinburgh, the principals are three hedonistic friends whose handsome flat ends up host to a corpse and a suitcase of dirty money. What follows is fiendish good fun – with much of the menace down to star Christopher Eccleston, excelling as uptight accountant David.
