Shane O'Sullivan
Writer, director, Second Generation (2000)
Bafflingly torpid, inattentively photographed and without any real insights into Londonís Bangladeshi or Japanese communities.
(Peter Bradshaw, Guardian)
Shane O'Sullivan must hate popcorn. One imagines he sat next to some loud muncher in his local fleapit and so designed his first film as an act of vengeance on audiences. Words like tedious, creaky, and incompetent spring to mind, and that's in the better scenes.
(Michael Thomson, BBC i)
An act of cultural sadism and financial masochism. For me to apply any normal critical standards to this would be like driving a steamroller over a litter of defenceless puppies.
(Chris Tookey, Daily Mail)
