Alan Clarke Storbritannien, 1989

Feellikeanumber's rating of the film The Firm

8/10 The banality of evil. Middle-aged real-estate agents and underaged schoolboys kicking the shit out of each other because of some sport (I know it much deeper than that). Majestic performance by Gary Oldman, who plays a boy trapped in a body of a man, craving for blood and respect, punching the pillow while screaming his nemesis name. Extremely well directed by mister Clarke; those long shots!
