Susana Bessa's rating of the film The Riot Club

This is a fine-constructed episode of repellent wicked proportions that takes one to a Von Trier nightmarish type build-up, but leaves us without much else.This sketch of English class warfare focused on a bunch of patrician assholes, delivers some impressive performances from both Iron and Claflin with their mirrored dimensional characters, but fails to leave behind that political aftermath we were hoping for.
