Product Overview

Score 4

The Firm – Special Edition
TAGS:

[b]Alan Clarke[/b]’s last work, a 1989 TV drama, with estate agent [b]Gary Oldman[/b] leading his fearsome Inter City Crew on weekend rucks with rival teams’ supporters.

As a study of football hooliganism, it’s grim stuff – Stanley knives being the weapon of choice – and Oldman is typically compelling, with great support from his then wife, Leslie Manville, and Phil Davis. And everyone with a skinhead who’s ever been in EastEnders appears.

EXTRAS: Commentary, doc, plus editions of Timewatch and The Late Show.
