one of the toughest films to come out of Britain, 9 September 2000
Author: cread (readcharles@hotmail.com) from devon, england

The late great Alan Clarke (Scum) brings us Made in Britain, a tough and uncompromising (though not actually physically violent) character study of a bored and angry teenager, played by Tim Roth, one of 'Fatcher's' children. The films rather flat narrative follows (both in terms of plot and camera movement) him through his refusal to 'conform' to the authority. Contrary to what a previous reviewer has said, it was not the intention for us, the audience, to believe that he must be forced to conform. The key in the film is that he never does conform, and that for all his obvious faults (racism and rebellion, it seems, a product of a right-wing and suppressive society) he retains the courage to stick to what he believes in. Rather than an anti-hero, Tim Roth's character seems to be more of a anarchist anti-authoritarian (rather like Alan Clarke himself) who is locked away for admitting to what he believes in.

So if you're in the mood, settle back and watch a film that packs a powerful punch. Probably most enjoyable if you're a little bit of an anarchist yourself (everyone else will most likely just be offended by it). Damned authority.
