he League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse
Writing about web page http://www.uip.co.uk/leagueofgentlemen/trailer.html
This film, though confusing and convoluted, is a foaming-at-the-mouth fanperson's dream. The narrative – a sodden mess of characters old and new – is delicious, full of crossovers between [wait for it] dreams, 'our' reality, royston vasey and sixteenth century england. Characters meet creators (some finding each other ::shudder:: sexually attractive), creators bite the dust and we finally see Jeremy Dyson… sort of. Watch out for references to The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, Jason and the Argonauts and god knows how many other films, and fantastic cameos from Peter Kay and Simon Pegg.
