Ben Wheatley United Kingdom, 2012

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Sightseers

Another Wheatley film where a great idea is let down by incompetent presentation. His usual shtick is to contrast incompatible forms; here it's Nuts in May meets Natural Born Killers. It doesn't work because his direction is unadventurous and televisual; and yet once again there's a smug contentedness to the proceedings, as if just the mere thought of this kind of genre deconstruction is incredibly brave and unique.
