Movie Reviews (151-200) (50 movies items)

" Realistic portrait of a loser. Actor Tom Courtenay steals every scene he's in as he looks like a young delinquent. The film make good use of flashbacks and is interestingly told. Only reason it doesn't feel that fresh anymore is that British cinema has used the movie as basis for any other film in the same genre."
