raw bostal film. Gritty and holds no punches. Will feel watered down in 2010 - but some 30 years on deserves a thumbs up.

"Directed by Alan Clarke Considered to be one of the most highly controversial films of it's time for it's graphic violence and content concerning 'realism' to being a no holds bared exposé on the internal corruption of English borstals (juvenile detentions) which have gained a nefarious reputation for their extreme methods which borderline on military torture facilities. Originally, a less explicit version of this film was shown for the BBC as a cable broadcast, but after immediate censorship "

"Katsottu: 24.8.2011 Raadollista kuvausta nuorisovankilasta, jossa Ray Winstone tekee elämänsä roolin. Vankila on karu paikka, jossa jokaisen tulee ansaita asemansa. Asiaa eivät helpota vittumaiset vartijat, jotka tekevät nuorien vankien elämästä helvettiä. Scum on erinomainen kuvaus fasismista, joka lopulta ajaa vangit kapinaan.

"The notorious Borstals were some sort of prisons for young juveniles. Scum is a social commentary of that specific era in british history. Scum isn't anything spectacular in the year 09 - but the anal penetration is still painful to watch. Almost as bad as the one in Spetters (1980). Director Alan Clarke has been a major influence to directors like Gus van Sant and Harmony Korine. "
