Green Street Hooligans

Green Street Hooligans

I'm fascinated by soccer hooligan culture (see my recommendation for The Real Football Factory). This is one of the best fictional films made on the subject. Set in London and centred around an American (Elijah Wood) who gets drawn into the world of the Green Street Elite - West Ham United's firm, by his sister's charismatic brother-in-law (Charlie Hunnan). The hooligan culture is fascinating with its levels of loyalty, comraderie, identity and passion and this film does a good job of capturing more than the media ever did at the height of the hooligan culture in the UK during the 80s and 90s.

  • Heartbreaking story about perception and forgiveness, but so beautifully done and visually stunning.

A very touching and sentimental drama featuring international film stars Dame Judi Dench (James Bond films), Dame Maggie Smith (Harry Potter Films), and Daniel Bruhl (Goodbye Lenin and Bourne Supremacy) in one of his first English speaking roles. Two older women find a young man washed upon the shore and nurse him back to health. While doing so one of the women becomes enamored with him. Nice stay at home flick.

  • ... expect little from this one and you'll be happily saisfied. It's a , relatively predictable, but kind-of fun heist film. Plus, i think it might be based on a true story, but I can't say for sure.

A fascinating documentary about the rise and fall of the Brit Pop music moment of the 90s. It may have barely made a blip in North America (I still cannot believe that Oasis is only known as "That Wonderwall band", but the genre made a lasting impact in the UK with much of the modern music being made there owes a huge debt to the bands of BritPop. Live Forever takes it's name from the Oasis song and certainly asks and answers the question "Where were you while we were getting high?" With compelling interviews from some of the major players such as Blur's Damon Albarn, Pulp's Jarvis Cocker and Oasis's brothers Gallagher who come across as bitter, depressed and as cocksure as ever, in that order. Live Forever sheds a light on the things in the background of the media-propelled musical genre of Brit Pop. Certainly fascinating and not just to those like me, who were and are fans.

A by-the-books, overachieving London cop is "promoted" to the seemingly sleepy English countryside by colleagues who feel threatened by his work ethic. Starring the wonderful pair of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as the rural cop he is partnered with, Hot Fuzz is a wickedly funny, bang-on satire/homage of the buddy-flick (ie. Lethal Weapon, Bad Boys). If you've seen Pegg, Frost and director, Edgar Wright's previous film, Shaun of the Dead, you'll love Hot Fuzz. It's hilarious, extremely clever and the type of film you'll want to watch over and over again just to catch everything.

A devout and pious Catholic police sergeant travels to a remote Scottish island when he receives word that a young girl has gone missing. What he finds shocks and subtly intrigues while threatening his religious beliefs - a deeply pagan and close-knit society who worship nature over established religion. With strange customs and overt sensuality on full display at each turn, Edward Woodward's Sergeant Howie rallies forth to do his duty and solve the central mystery of the missing child. Entangling with the town's charmingly sinister leader Lord Summerisle (a wonderful Christopher Lee), the beguiling landlord's daughter and nymph Willow (Britt Eckland) and a host of other vaguely sinister characters, Howie delves deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the island, until the Wicker Man's stunning conclusion. It's an utterly unforgettable and original film, sadly underrated at the time of its release and it's brilliance was barely touched by the abysmal, woefully misguided 2006 remake of the same name.
