Restless Native (1985)

Michael Hoffman directs Vincent Friell, Joe Mullaney and Ned Beatty in this Scottish crime comedy where a pair of Edinburgh youths hijack tourist buses for cash and become Robin Hood-esque media sensations.

The acting is atrocious and it often feels like it has nowhere to go but circles after the first act. Yet it is incredibly sweet natured and you’d have to be some kind stone hearted sad sack not to get swept up in its lo-fi ambition. Wonderful to see Edinburgh looking so dirty and undeveloped.
