The Independent - Michael Coveney
Doon Mackichan....underplays Fay's blatant sexuality with a sly, Celtic knowingness. The result is a performance that remains breathtaking in its cruelty and audacity without beating you over the head with comic relief.
Loot follows the fortunes of two young lads, Dennis and Hal, who hijack Hal’s mother’s coffin to stash the loot from a recent heist. The plot thickens as her body keeps turning up around the house, the unscrupulous police Inspector Truscott arrives on the scene sowing confusion around him, whilst nurse Fay works her dubious charms on Hal's dad.
