Shallow Grave (1994)

Just two years before his 90’s hit Trainspotting, Danny Boyle’s impressive debut feature gave British cinema a lift with its uncharacteristic venture into noir territory.

Alex, a journalist (Ewan McGregor), accountant David (Christopher Eccleston) and Juliet, a doctor (Kerry Fox), twenty-something flat-sharing friends in Edinburgh, get into dark concealment and bloody corpse-dismemberment with great style.

A sharp-edged, talented black comedy with international appeal.
