Welcome to THE most famous unnamed British Borstal of the ’70s, known today as “Young Offender’s Institution”.
Based on the – banned from BBC – homonym TV film “Scum”( 1977), Alan Clarke remade his own film two years later, which was characterized as one of the most controversial films of the ’80s. And became cult. No music whatsoever, no glamourized violence, stronger inmates victimizing weaker inmates, racism, gruesome suicides, and more punchlines than anyone can memorize send a shockwave to the British system.
I say no more. “Scum” is a must-see and the beginning of a brilliant career of beloved actor Ray Winstone. I would say “enjoy” but it is not enjoyable.
