Total car crash but oddly hypnotic.
REMEMBRANCE is a very interesting curio from 1982, not least because it's set (and filmed) in Plymouth which is near to where I live - the film serves as a wonderful time capsule of the period and goes to show how much of a colossal change the city has endured in the years since.
Also of interest is that REMEMBRANCE stars a very young Gary Oldman (in his big screen debut) - most of his scenes are at the beginning…
Not an F1 fan, nor am I a lover of sports in general but this film is great. The two central performances are both effortless in their greatness and the actors play off each other well. Morgan's script is great and Howard keeps the whole thing buzzing along at a tremendous pace.
I am really surprised by how much I liked this film.
Wow! Now here's a film that lets the viewer think for a change. A brilliant piece of writing and a cracking ensemble headed-up by a terrifically fearless performance from James McAvoy.
Given that it's based on a book by Irvine Welsh there are bound to be comparisons to Danny Boyle's adaptation of Trainspotting but rest assured, Filth holds its own.
