"My name is Hopkins! Don't forget it!"
Bullworth Academy in a nutshell
Who would win butch or Carlin
Dayum, homeboy split some wigs wid his lock in a sock! Oh wait, wrong country.
How strong is the screw, that lad is like a rag doll to him.
Got to respect the lads for not stitching
Carlin is the truth!
Carlin is top dog
pinche Jimmy Jopkins :v
did he say "im the daddy now"? fuckin europe. more specifically u.k. shits goofy
How you should deal with chuggers.
grew up to battle in the work races, pick up the pace fuckin jordan knows it
Advert for Robertson's Marmalade at 1:07
Yeah, but for some reason the TV shows a Bird's Trifle ad with Robertson's Marmalade tune playing over it?Take a look at 1:05 ( closing fridge door ) and at 1:18 ( bowl of trifle! )
I still like those "Mecca" scenes. How's Mecca these days, Archer?
That's for the fucking parklife video Phil Daniels!!
you should cut down on your pork-life mate, get some exercise
is that Danny John Jules aka Cat from Red Dwarf at 2:33?
It is indeed.
Just like dog pound
+Salomon Gonzalez That Canadian remake just doesn't compare to this original classic
That's how you take care of business
All worked up over a film, wow..... hate to see if a few people here had a real life !!!!....
just love him 💝💝
I swear the scene in Dog Pound is so much more intense and realistic than this one.
There needs to be a remake of this and it needs to be British that crappy Canadian version don't cut it.
Alex The chef at least Davis got avaged in dog pound
Honestly dog pound was pretty good. Not as good as this but I good modern take on it
+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.
+ScragNath There is a Canadian version but it's called dog pound
+Al staniland Its been made and remade. I have two versions. Whats with the Canadian stuff?
Carlin British trevor Philips
Primrose Stanley is more like jimmy hopkins, from Bully.
Part of the film is about standing up to bullies.
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
+Kelly14UK Oh well it's not clear from this version.
The boy WAS gay. That's why he was hated by those bullies and the screws.+TheSealOfTheRose
+Kelly14UK No one was gay in the film. The younger one got raped by violent desperate but presumably technically heterosexual boys.
+Heavyweightboxing Fan Then becoming one yourself.
banks u barstad!
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
+Raskolnikov Nabokov a man must have a hobby i suppose
+Stephen hughes thats nice
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 .
+Stephen hughes on repeat
You've got it :)
When Winston could still act. And boy, he could act!
fackin well will toerag!
Awesome acting in the final scene.
Carry on...great line!!
Two punches to the gut and then a hard knee too. Good moves!
Why do they keep saying "I slipped sir." Cos that's never gonna work.
what i wanna know is why the fuck guards or supperiors insist on asking the fucking question.It's like they don't fucking know that they're only making it harder on the prisoners or kdis
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
Because in prison you don't want people to know you are a grass.
Cause they both know he had been beaten, it was just his way of saying I'm not going to say what happened indirectly, because the rules of the prison were not to be straight.
NEXT TIME I'LL FUCKIN KILL YA!
just like porridge
1:01 that is the most satisfying thing I've ever seen
My time spent in Rochester borstal ! Shit happens ! I'm the daddy now hahaha
I got this for christmas and watched it on christmas night, very much in the spirit
+rayjt17 I think this should be shown as the Christmas movie right after HM Queen's speech.....imagine watching this beside a roaring fire with all the family
+rayjt17 Did you wank over the bumming scene?
Wack ,youve been snookerd lol xx
Ok---is it really like this in Britain's reformatories or has this all been sensationalized?
"Because exposing convicts openly and abusively to other convicts is gonna make them better citizens"- The Prison System
I have no idea generally, all I can say is compared to British prisons Americans look like they're in a 3rd world country. Correct me if I'm wrong, cause I've been looking up American prisons and have seen documentaries and you all seem to have literal bars in the cells, so that all the inmates can see each other. Is that true?
Speaking to old cons whilst in jail myself Back in the old days the 60s up until the late 80s they were verry tough prisons worse than this film we had lot less crime then now most uk prisons are like 3* hotels lol so absolutely no deterrent recidivism rates are probably the highest in the world
im the fucking DADDY........
That screw's probably got a small willy.
Awesome film. Very realistic, brutal, disturbing and compelling film to watch..even if it looks dated now. Arguably Ray Winstones best to date.
+71yid Films were better in the past as was music and sport.
It's a pity he died in 1990, we could have seen a lot more great TV plays from him. He was also very versatile and directed comedy dramas too. Remember Rita, Sue and Bob too?
+Videotape Memories Alan Clarke, not Alan Parker.
terrific film - saw it when it first come out - but that scene where the two nonces done the young lad in the greenhouse will haunt me forever . Ray Winstone was, is and always be The Man .
Stabbings and beatings were common in borstals in those days not a place you want to be.
+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.
Yup and out of touch, posh, connected bastards sent vunerable non violent mentally wayward kids there.
"You let him do you over! you TWAT!"
Divide and beat the living fuck out of them.
Nice one Carlin, but Mr Sands was an absolute 100% B*****D!
+Jack Regan you would be on the bacon wing ;Thats for sure jackie
@1.06 The toady Eckersley knows which way the cards are stacked...
"I'm a daddy now!"
I just watched this movie, it was amazing. This is what filmmaking is about. Acting, raw and emotional!
Would of liked 2 see Sands get smacked back.
I always fantasize that I am Carlin. Richards is my ex girlfriend. Pongo Banks is the man she dumped me for.
+Scott Wilson Get back to the dole queue you semi literate chav
Ray Winstone played the tough guy even as a kid.
+norman no That must be why those strikes on Banks look so impressive.
he wasnt playing at it - winstone was a boxing champ as a young man
Why the fuck did he have to do that 365 shit. He must be really fucking struggling to put food on the table in that mansion. FFS.
Quality, quality film. Doesn't matter how old it gets, it's still as powerful as it was when it first came out. Absolutely superb
+Morning69Glory spot on.
Did you notice the way Carlin sees Pongo in the mirror in the bogs before he does him over ?
yeah well cawwy on.
Next Time I'll Facking Kill Yaa
You all see Danny John-Jules who played cat from red dwarf playing snooker there ?
+SrTuco Don't forget Alan "Up Your Fuckin' Borstal" Igbon!
+chris mahon Yeah, there was The Cat from Red Dwarf. Other actors in the film were 'Micky Pearce' from Only Fools and Horses, Andrew Paul ('Dave Quinnan') from The Bill.
Nice one man !
when he goes to do pongo and that lad points him towards the bogs lol he smashes him in big style, imagine gettin your head run off some solid steel taps! sands knows he no longer has control of his wing from that moment on!
Well they weren't in there for a holiday, let's put it that way.
Were people put into borstals for any crime committed?
I said get back shithead lolEvidently he takes no shit from anybody.·
i like this film SCUM
Agree! Seize the day!!!
Yes prison does work and make people into more wholesome individuals
Pongo and Mrs Banks had to adopt
That's Archer who does that, can't keep his mouth shut haha
yeah such a awesome scene
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.
