Movie Info

Delroy's pregnant wife has been found dead in a pool of blood and he is brought in as the chief suspect. He is interrogated by D.S. Karn, a witty, psychotic racist and his violent sidekick D.C. Wilby. Both high on the prospect of a Conservative landslide victory they try to lure him into a quick confession. Callous humiliation gives way to a barrage of sinister violence, leading to a devastating conclusion. SUS is named after the stop and search laws which bred institutional racism into the police force, allowing officers in the 1970s to effective charge anyone they thought was up to no good. This term was often used to abuse and bully members of ethnic communities.

Audience Reviews for Sus


A great script from Barrie Keefe ('The Long Good Friday') make this an entertaining film but it never quite breaks away from its original stage boundaries. The acting is good, although Spall is a little too much like a nastier version of his 'Hot Fuzz' character and Brown sometimes overacts the role but Dyer is great as the accused prisoner and his scenes of emotion are genuinely affecting. A good showcase for the actors and I'd enjoy seeing this onstage but it doesn't quite make a great film.

It is a shame this movie does not get more exposure. Apart from the fact that is in important case study of sublte and underlying racism in a bureaucratic society of white nobodies it is a gripping and terifying chamber drama. When a young black man is arrested he does not know that is a suspect in a murder case involving his own wife and he is now in the hands of psychotic and violent flatfoot duo Riley & Carn who a psyched about the landslide conservative victory and fantasize about the new 'dawn' of a a right wing government. The performances are very good and it says a lot about the actors' talents (and the screenwriters) when you can set the whole film in an interrogation room with 2 chairs and a table. This film is based on a stage play and you can tell, sharp dialogues, great acting and dense atmosphere. A great movie, should not be missed by anyone.
