comeandsee's rating of the film Six Shooter

one of the greatest shorts of recent years. it has such a dark, tragic centre to it, which is balanced with comedy and a search for identity which characterises all of McDonagh's work. the performances are brilliant, especially Brendan Gleeson. as with all irish films, some of the references are very specific, but technically this is a masterpiece. witty, sardonic, funny, black and in the end life affirming.
