Hailed as a lost classic on its re-release a couple of years back, this is a fascinating period piece but probably not a lot more than that. Images of the still operational London Docklands, bright spanking new housing estates and grubby, soot laden alleyways are striking in the light of the transformation of Stratford and its surrounds wrought by years of gentrification and completed by the 2012 Olympics.
It presents a continuum between the Fifties realism of Saturday Night, Sunday Morning and the current day work of Andrea Arnold (her Fish Tank is staged nearby) and Shane Meadows but lacks the narrative drive of either. Still, the deployment of non-trained actors yet again pays dividends with some convincing central performances. Why don't they just shut RADA down?
Uppriktigt och trovÃ¤rdigt om arbetarklassungdomar i 60-talets London med suedehead-kulturen som bakgrund. This Was England.
Low budget British teen orientated drama from 1968. Presented here by the BFI, remastered on Blu-Ray and DVD, bundled with a load of extras, is a real treat (the negative of the film was once famously nearly binned off). Bronco Bullfrog's place in British cinema is that sandwiched inbetween the free cinema movement and the later films of Alan Clarke. Platts-Mills gets a real sense of the everyday lives of marginalised teenagers of East London, though some of the performances come across as a bit stilted by the inexperienced cast, all brought together from the Stratford area by theatre director Joan Littlewood - her theatre work with the youths itself a subject of one of the featurettes in the extras.
