Simon Collison’s review published on Letterboxd :
A film I've watched hundreds of times. Finney is Arthur Seaton, a rogue working at the Raleigh bicycle factory in Nottingham. He made his career off the back of this film, and quite right too. The direction is superb, the soundtrack wonderful, the cast (mostly) excellent. This is Nottingham in the sixties as my Dad describes it: hard work to earn weekends at play, but with occasional consequences. One of the best British kitchen sink movies ever made. I absolutely love it.
