Amoral
9 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The eponymous Alf Garnett stars in his own Hollywood film, as a dockworker relocated from his "lovely" (ho ho ho) little house to the top floor of a tower block in a raw looking new estate.

This curious little drama follows the story of his life and the trials of his daughters marriage. The dodgy morality is dead in period.

Cameo appearances by George Best (author of the famous quip "90% of my money I spent on loose women, fast cars and alcohol – the rest I just wasted") when he still had a functioning liver and various other soccer and political figures of the era add to the plain little story.

In one scene the newspaper headlines change within two takes. Product placements – The Daily Mirror (a very odd choice of reading material for a Conservative !), Adidas (repeatedly) and Tetley Bitter.

By the way, I direct you to the film "10 Rillington Place" for an example of a house that was considered by the British Housing Commission "too good" to be demolished to give you an insight into how "lovely" Alf's old house would have been.
