Some members' comments:

Great camera work and pretty powerful story if a little unlikely ending. Vivid portrayal of displacement, insecurity and living on the edge of society. Powerful, disturbing and moving - technically brilliant. Great camera work and lighting - stunning. Terrible ending - First 110 minutes very good. A powerful drama on such a disturbing subject. Who would want to be an immigrant in the modern era. Very good. Direction and great photography. Time lag at the end as he'd gained the knowledge to become a London taxi driver. On the edge of the seat waiting for the next awful thing to happen. Too violent, didn't follow the gange logic. Happy ending?! What were all the factions? The end ruined it for me.
