Pressure...I did warn you...
22 April 1999 | by (Brixton-pre yuppy era. London, UK) – See all my reviews

Pressure, written by S. Selvon, this movie now, when I think about it 20 years later reminds me of Spike's Do The Right Thing. After it was released, it came to pass a big uprising in LA, that for once the Gov. could NOT blame the communists for. Pressure shows life in Britain for first generation born brothers like myself, who were totally unprepared for the beast of racism that came at them once they left school. Not long after the film, there were uprisings in Notting Hill. I look back at that movie again, and it really is like a documentary like Cathy Come Home, fictional but so so real, and important because mainstream English media (which unlike the US has very little alternative voices) ignored or blamed on 'communist elements'. On a lighter side, check out Selvons books on life on London written from a bitter sweet Trini perspective. Zeech 1
