Today marks the release of Sightseers into UK cinemas. At long last, this brilliant film starring Alice Lowe, Steve Oram and Richard Glover can be shared by you all. Directed by Ben Wheatley, we’ve gone bananas for it because it truly is brilliant and deserves your attention. It opens in 92 cinemas nationwide, and it’s success this weekend will decide if it expands to further cinemas next week, so it’s crucial if you have a passing interest in the film, you go and see it now!
Of course, most of you will be more than aware of the work of Alice Lowe and Steve Oram before this film was released, but for those of you who are new to their genius, we thought we’d compile a handy list of easy-to-access clips from the Tube of You. It’s been tough selecting only five each, but we think we’ve found you some absolute corkers.
All of these clips are either web-shorts, live clips or tv taster pilots which didn’t go to broadcast, which helped narrow the list down somewhat. Obviously, they only scratch the surface of the great work the pair have been crafting for the past decade. To truly experience their mastery, you simply must see them live at the earliest opportunity, and to find out when that next is, you’ll have to keep coming back here! We’ll be keeping you posted on any appearances they make, so pop back every now and then to find out more.
If that’s too long a wait, you can browse their ‘videographies’, as it were, via our TVO webstores. Both run by Amazon on our behalf, we have dedicated sections for every artist we feature in a UK and US store – and both will ship internationally too. For Alice’s stuff, visit here for UK, and here for US – and if Steve’s your bag, visit here for UK, and here for US.
Now to the top ten! Continue reading
