USA Scum (1979) - June 4, 2013





Scum Blu-ray

Quote:
Scum is a 1979 British crime drama film directed by Alan Clarke, portraying the brutality of life inside a British borstal. The script was originally made for the BBC's Play for Today strand in 1977, however due to the violence depicted, it was withdrawn from broadcast.[2] Two years later, director Alan Clarke and scriptwriter Roy Minton remade it as a film, first shown on Channel 4 in 1983.[2] By this time the borstal system had been reformatted and eventually allowed the original TV version to be aired.

The film tells the story of a young offender named Carlin as he arrives at the institution, and his rise through violence and self-protection to the top of the inmates' pecking order, purely as a tool to survive. Beyond Carlin's individual storyline, it is also cast as an indictment of the borstal system's flaws with no attempt at rehabilitation. The warders and convicts alike are brutalised by the system. The film's controversy was derived from its graphic depiction of racism, extreme violence, rape, suicide, many fights and very strong language.[3]

Scum would be one of the most controversial British films of the early 1980s, but has since become regarded as a popular classic.

Nice! For those here who like BAD BOYS with Sean Penn...SCUM is its much rougher, uncompromising U.K. antecedent.

I remember seeing this years ago and finding it hard to watch...
"Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that two stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!"

That cover is awful - who on earth designs this crap.
Saw the film again recently and was even more interesting as now I'm a "grown up" I work for Her Majesty's Prisons.

Hi-def bumming ahoy.

Will probably pick this up. Actually prefer the theatrical release over the original.

Saw the BU disc years ago and thought it was a great, harsh film. Looking forward to this release.
