The film is almost distractingly beautiful to look at, something that accentuates the tension between the film's conflicting quantities, i.e., the glories of the physical world, and the corrupted humanity it hosts.
I'm still trying to figure out what mods have to do with Brighton Rock, and I can only guess that Joffe glommed onto the little town's best known pop-culture credential in hope of connecting with a broader, or perhaps younger, international audience.
Rowan Joffe's film of Graham Greene's 1938 novel Brighton Rock takes a gothic approach to the story of a young thug obsessed with hell with little of the writer's subtlety and too much reliance on a loud quasi-religious choral score.
