Scum by Alan Clarke( Visual )

49 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the hard and shocking story of life in a British Borstal for young offenders. The brutal regime made no attempt to reform or improve the inmates and actively encouraged a power struggle between the 'tough' new inmate and the 'old hands'. The film was originally made as a BBC play but it was banned before ever being shown. So 'Alan Clarke' and 'Roy Minton' got it re-made as a film. This is a tough and brutal film and should not be viewed lightly

Trevor is a violent, racist skinhead who refuses to cooperate with any attempts by the courts or social workers to rehabilitate him. He is a bright boy who sees himself as the victim of authoritarianism and believes he can beat the system with belligerence and defiance. His forthright but confused sense of pride in his white heritage is a personification of the dark underbelly of 1980s Britain. Intelligent and articulate, Trevor is smart enough to understand the trap of crime, prison, and poverty he's walking into but too angry to care. Obnoxious though Trevor undoubtedly is, behind his aggressive façade are glimpses of a desperate individual, and it becomes hard not to pity him
The Firm by John Grisham( Visual )

The firm: Clive 'Bex' Bissel, estate agent, father and husband, is an average guy, who just happens to be the head of a violent gang of soccer hooligans. As leader of the Intercity Crew, Bex wants to merge his 'firm' with two rival gangs in anticipation of a huge multi-country brawl at the 1988 European Championships. He nominates himself as the leader of a national organization, but his counterparts, Yeti and Oboe refuse to comply, believing that only one firm should be allowed to represent England in Munich. The "soccer hooligan" phenomenon--wherein ordinary people lead side lives dominated by acts of violence and rage--can, if unchecked, escalate out of control and destroy those lives

Es ist ein schöner Herbsttag. Eli, der zu Fuss in die Schule unterwegs ist, überredet im Park ein Punk- Pärchen, für ein paar Fotos zu posieren. Nate trifft nach dem Football-Training seine Freundin Carrie zum Mittagessen. John hinterlegt im Rektorat die Autoschlüssel seines Vaters, damit sein Bruder sie dort abholen kann. In der Cafeteria tratschen Brittany, Jordan und Nicole und beklagen sich über das Geschnüffel ihrer Mütter. Michelle rast in die Bibliothek, während Eli im Korridor ein paar Fotos von John knipst. John geht hinaus auf den Rasen, wo er den Weg von Alex und Eric kreuzt. Ein gewöhnlicher Tag an einer High School, der so gar nicht gewöhnlich enden wird. Der Spielfilm nimmt Bezug auf die Bluttat vom 20. April 1999, als an der Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado der 17-jährige Dylan Klebold und der 18-jährige Eric Harris zwölf Mitschüler und einen Lehrer erschossen. In der ganzen Schule hatten sie Sprengfallen angebracht, insgesamt wurden 23 Menschen verletzt. Die Tat war kein Amoklauf sondern ein von langer Hand geplantes Massaker, an dessen Ende die beiden Teenager Selbstmord begingen

Tales out of school : four films( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring early roles for Tim Roth and Jim Broadbent, the films form a scathing portrait of British society in the early 1980s, focusing in particular on the polarisation of attitudes towards the role and methods of education in an increasingly fragmented society. Without overtly offering solutions, Leland's films depict - often with unnerving acuity and foresight - the experience of individuals within systems that have become inadequate in dealing with the fallout of social breakdown. Of the four films presented here, Made in Britain, directed by the celebrated Alan Clarke, inevitably aroused the strongest controversy, with Tim Roth's astonishing portrayal of a nihilistic, racist teenage skinhead captured by Chris Menges' innovative cinematography"--Original box
