      +Al staniland Then I hope it didn't detract from what the original life in a British borstal was set out to portray.
      This version did not portray the homosexuality of the main character (Carlin) with what he called his 'Missis'
      A sex slave he had at hand whilst he served his time.

      Nah it's just not on the cards in the cinema one. The young boy was homosexual and the greenhouse scene was simply "that prison thing". It's badness, pure and simple. +TheSealOfTheRose

    Expertly filmed, too. Single camera shot from him coming down the corridor to the games room, filling the sock, pausing in the doorway to the other room and up to the point where he clops the guy round the head. Can you spot where the sock was swapped for one filled with papier mache balls? :D

      I first watched this film in the Winter of 83/84 , it must have been a late night Friday night , on the TV ,
      i was working in a Pub in central London , and all the staff huddled round the table after work , drinking etc , we were all riveted by this film , it did make a lifelong impression .

      If you're called out as being a grass, then you will have an even worse time in prison more than ever, since everyone knows that you won't be trusted, so no one will bother helping you

    • Extreme Weather
      Extreme Weather 3 years ago

      +Gary Hunter Yep. Violence bred violence. Their dads were not around or were in prison. Unfortunately, their kids went down the same route. Another generation on (and these generations are, oh, so short) Those kids bred in the 90s. In my just less than 50 years on this planet I've seen kids stabbing in the 70s to kids stabbing now. All to get a foot up the ladder that leads to nowhere. That is the power of this film. It is just bleak. And yet, within it, there is still just that seed of hope.

    Awesome scene, especially after Carlin tries to do his time in peace, but is pushed into a corner. I love the scene where Richards breaks it down to the screw in the dayroom over tea, sometimes words hurt more than actual physical violence.
