DVD review: Sightseers

The Independent Culture

Two cosy, cagoule-clad serial killers (played by the film's co-writers Alice Lowe and Steve Oram) pootle around the north of England in Ben Wheatley's dark comedy, tramping through drizzly abbeys and drizzly tram museums, while occasionally bashing strangers over the head with rocks.

Sightseers can be extremely funny, but the lack of plot and complexity can make it seem more like a rambling sketch than a fully formed feature film.
