In Order of Disappearance provoked some debate, particularly over the question of violence, but it still achieved a strong appreciation score of 83 per cent.
- “Amusing black farce, beautifully understated acting by the lead characters.”
- “Fantastic, beautiful scenery, excellent storyline.”
- As much snow as The Revenant – but with a plot!”
- “Compelling, grim content, but good!”
- “Too much blood.”
- “Horrible film. Why show it?”
Meanwhile, the student film, Red Cap, was even more popular than the main film, which may be a first. It scored 84 per cent and drew a string of appreciative comments:
- “The best student film I’ve seen here. V. V. good!”
- “Unpretentious and funny. A welcome change.”
- “Very enjoyable!”
- “I like a nice gnome film.”
Just to prove that you can’t please everybody, however, one member described the film as “puerile, ham-acted nonsense”.
