Football frenzied drama starring Gary Oldman

Trending Now

Alan Clarke‘s last work, a 1989 TV drama, with estate agent Gary Oldman 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.
