Up there with the best movies ever, I scary tale of what can happen when the pressure just gets to much......
This is one of my favourite movies ever, the way it is filmed gives a chillingly really realistic feel to it, and you (well I) have a real sense of sympathy for the main character who finally snaps due to the unbearable pressures around him. I think this is also a very artistic movie and should not be dismissed because of it's title. One of the best adverts against loud music and wasteful, decaying inner city life I have ever seen, fantastic.
