Alan Clarke Storbritannien, 1989

Samuel T.'s rating of the film The Firm

The most privileged and by far the most pathetic characters of study, of any Clarke film thus investigated, yet unflinching in it's veracity, the last scene the pot calling the kettle black, cementing British hopelessness and material emptiness. Steadicam walking, following, again A+. Bonus: Leigh regular Lesley Manville as rightfully pissed off wife.
