Director Alan Clarke( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Somewhat unappreciated critically thanks to the bulk of his work being made for television, British director Alan Clarke was nevertheless prolific, radical, uncompromising, and innovative. His best works are subversive, compassionate, and moral, addressing the injustices suffered by the most despised and neglected groups in society. Clarke's three best-regarded works dealt with the violence of young males, and starred three actors who went on to become household names. "Scum" (1977) is an exposé of brutal conditions in Borstal, "Made in Britain" (1983) gives a portrait of an incandescently violent, racist skinhead, while "The Firm" (1988) features wisecracking estate agent who's addicted to weekend football violence. No solutions are offered to the problems of the protagonists in these films--Clarke's target is the atavistic morality of Thatcherite Britain. Social issues and ills, bleak humor, and a minimalist style characterize Clarke's exceptional television productions, halted by his untimely early death at age 55 in 1990
