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

3003 Movies Into the Golden Age!!!...so far? (6040 movies items)

"Directed by Alan Clarke SHOCKINGLY GRAPHIC exposé on the previously corrupt English borstal system, is still equally provocative today for it's honesty, authenticity, and philosophical ideals on totalitarian fascism!... "

"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. Mistään helposta elokuvasta ei ole kyse, kun jokaisessa kohtauksessa nihilismi nostaa ilkeästi päätään. Tämän tapaisten kuvausten ansiosta elokuvilla o"

"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. "
