Competition: Win Jon Baird’s ‘Filth’ *closed*

A darkly comic adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel of the same name, director Jon S. Baird’s Filth (2013) sees Scottish actor James McAvoy give the performance of his career as a crooked cop gone rogue, and also features an incredible supporting cast including Jamie Bell and Jim Broadbent. To celebrate the DVD and the Blu-ray release of the award-winning Filth on Monday 10 February, we have THREE DVD copies of Baird’s crime comedy to give away to our readers, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal (John Sessions). As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of Filth on DVD, just answer the following simple question:
