Cemetery Junction is a highly accomplished British film in the grand tradition of the 60s 'kitchen sink' school - feeling like life is passing you by in a small town and yearning to escape. The film succeeds in rising above the clichés of this well-worn theme, however, by its sheer depth of feeling and energy. As any one who watched the Extras Christmas Special will know, what Gervais and Merchant do so well is move with consummate ease between laugh-out-loud comedy and lump-in-the-throat emotion that is quite remarkable and powerfully cathartic. This is a film with a very big heart - you cannot see this film and not come out of the cinema feeling moved and slightly changed, the way any great film should have an impact on the way you think about your life and what it means to be alive. Highly recommended.
