I thought that the film Sightseers was quite marvelous. I marveled at the banal Englishness of the movie, and how it was a movie that offered a refreshing glimpse into a layer of the English psyche. 

If one had seen the Kill List on DVD with the director and scriptwriters commentary which featured the director and his wife basically giggling all the way through pointing out the humorous side of the scenes in the bleak movie, one might have thought that they would make an excellent black comedy movie together and indeed they did this with Sightseers which was a sort of romantic serial killer road movie with a good sense of black humoured absurdity,

One to avoid if you don't like people having their skulls smashed in.
