Peter Mullan's forceful drama about a boy who becomes embroiled in gangland life in 1970s Glasgow, peppered throughout with a rich vein of black humour.
Crime 2010 124 mins
Director: Peter Mullan
In 1970s Glasgow, John McGill is a promising student who livers in the shadow of his elder brother, a feared member of a local gang. Despite John’s clear talents, he’s unable to stop himself being sucked into a life of mindless violence.
Written and directed by Peter Mullan (who also stars as John’s alcoholic father) Neds is a refreshing take on the gangland drama that’s notable for its rich vein of humour and unexpectedly surreal asides, setting it apart from the traditions of British social realism. With its keen eye for the music and fashion of Scotland in the 1970s, Neds is also something of a quintessential Glasgow film.
