Reactions to In Order of Disappearance

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.

Some comments:

  • “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!”
  • “Brilliant!”
  • “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”.
