CGiii Comment

Spit in the faces of those who oppose you...metaphorically speaking.
 
One of the best British films ever made.
 
There has to be subtext...with Richardson at the helm...and, a borstal and a troubled boy.
 
This film screams of defiance and pain...haven't we all felt that...?
 
Mind-blowing, heart-melting.
 
A masterpiece.
