BlisteringBy bobbyperu from Merseyside , 20 Oct 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Brilliant, searing social-realist drama from Alan Clarke, one of the best British directors who ever lived.
Tim Roth puts in a remarkable performance as the disillusioned skinhead who finds himself passed from pillar to post in the British correctional system. No easy answers are offered, no loose ends are tied up, and the film begins as quickly and brutally as it starts.
This is classic British cinema, that truly stands with the best work of world cinema.

powerful, insightful & just a brilliant watchBy haylesbaylespigstales (128 reviews) from Fleetwood , 29 Jan 2013Tim roth is not ACE in this film, am a massive of his anyway & love 'lie to me'. Just shows how bad the 70's & 80's were to grow up in. Although I grew in them I wasn't old enough to kinda really know what was going on.
Such a powerful film, must buy this!!
Made in BritainBy Megal3g (5 reviews) , 24 Nov 2012Im not going to lie this is one of the best films iv ever watched haha. Its well worth a watch cause Tim roth plays the character really well.
Made in the 80s!By russio (158 reviews) from Harlow , 22 Jan 2012At times very powerful, at others extremely dated. Carried by Roth's bold performance, capturing all the arrogant nihilism of youth, the stand out scene comes much later as policemen confront him with the consequences of his behaviour. The wll-meaning left mocked and the hardcore right shown as fearful. Fierce, yet stagey and overcooked.
Loved it.......By Steve Hatton from Cornwall, England , 17 Dec 2011Fantastic indictment on the seventies, and the social problems encountered at that time. The fact that this is a fact-based tale only adds to the enjoyment. Gritty and worryingly raw, this is well worth a watch.
A proper window into 80's Britain.By a customer , 17 Aug 2011Ho Ho all these youngsters going all 80's retro really should watch this film to see what 80's Britain really was like. It pulled no punches and I loved it for this reason. Again I really can't stand all this modern day Politically Correct nonsense and there's absolutely none of that in this film (quite the opposite). I'm so glad I watched it.
