18/02/13 The Firm (1989)

A made for TV film about gentrified football hooliganism in yuppie-era Britain starring everyone who's ever been in a Guy Ritchie film or Eastenders, or been Gary Oldman.

At the time it was probably a bit shocking due to its bleak violence, portrayal of casually thuggish, moneyed working class people and how little football actually had to do with the battles they fought.

Battles makes it sound a bit grand doesn't it? Certainly merits those kinda fuckwits with a greater nobility than they ever deserved. Personally, I've never really given a fuck about football, money, fighting or Pringle jumpers so they can all shove it up their arse.
