The Firm: UK Premiere Footage

11 September 2009 1:38 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Nick Love's latest film The Firm had its UK premiere last night and we've got excellent footage from the red carpet. Love and his cast talk of their experiences and expectations for the film, an update of the 1988 Alan Clarke TV series, which takes a brutal and intelligent look at the plague of violence which was rife in parts of London the 80s.

Dave's review of the film is here and the film arrives in cinemas all over the country next Friday, the 18th of September.

Click here to jump to the footage and for a special 80-inspired treat - a nice mash up of the cast of the Firm and the Donna Summer anthem, I Feel Love. »

Review: The Firm

1 September 2009 3:18 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This evening I went along to a preview screening Nick Love's latest movie, 'The Firm'. A seemingly shy, reserved but proud Love stood there to introduce the film which he was obviously looking forward to us seeing. The Firm is a remake of the Alan Clarke TV movie of the same name which starred Gary Oldman back in 1988. This version is directed by Nick Love who has previously brought us movies such as 'The Football Factory'. Both versions of 'The Firm' are based around the original screenplay which was written by Al Ashton.

The backbone of 'The Firm' focuses around the football gang violence which occurred in the 1980's. Groups would use football matches as reasons to meet up and fight one another for supremacy off the pitch. West Ham are the team that we follow closely throughout the movie. The West Ham 'Firm' is led by Bex, »

New trailer for Nick Love's soccer hooligan flick The Firm

3 August 2009 1:05 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

I really dig these UK soccer hooligan flicks and we've been waiting on this one for a while. You can watch the first trailer here.

Loosely adapted from Alan Clarke's 1989 classic TV film, Nick Love's film is set earlier in the 80's and retells a similarly story to the original - but from a different character's point of view. The film centers on Dom, a young wannabe football casual who gets drawn into the charismatic but dangerous world of the firm's top boy, Bex.

Accepted for his fast mouth and sense of humor, Dom soon becomes one of the boys. But as Bex and his gang clash with rival firms across the country and the violence spirals out of control, Dom realizes he wants out - until he learns it's not that easy to simply walk away.

Trailer after the break.

World Exclusive: The Firm Poster

29 June 2009 1:19 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The Firm sees Nick Love, the man behind The Football Factory, return with another glimpse of the dark side of the beautiful game and here's a first glimpse of the poster in all its shellsuited-and-booted glory, courtesy of Warner Bros.Originally an Alan Clarke-directed TV drama with Gary Oldman as an unhinged crew leader, The Firm is given a different skew by Love's reboot which follows the seduction of the funny, fast-mouthed Dom (Calum McNab) into the violent world of football hooliganism. Expect the insults - and bottles - to fly as a soon-hesitant Dom finds the casual lifestyle a lot easier to get into than out of.The Firm is in cinemas on September 25, and co-stars Paul Anderson as gang leader Bex and Daniel Mays.      »

Trailer for Nick Love's football hooligan flick The Firm

18 June 2009 12:03 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Set in the 80's, complete with members only style jackets and a bunch of prettyboys who look like they be playing tennis rather then fighting over football comes the full trailer for Nick Love's (what a cool name) The Firm. Another in a growing list of hooligan flicks, it looks quite good. We brought you the first clip back in May as we've been on this one for a while, so don't miss out.

Loosely adapted from Alan Clarke's 1989 classic TV film, Nick Love's film is set earlier in the 80's and retells a similarly story to the original - but from a different character's point of view. The film centers on Dom, a young wannabe football casual who gets drawn into the charismatic but dangerous world of the firm's top boy, Bex.

Football holliganism again? It's Nick Love's The Firm

5 May 2009 12:23 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

What a name.. Nick Love. He doesn't have to use a line like "I'm not trying to impress you or anything.. but I'm Batman!" he just says, "Love, Nick Love" like he's the porno Bond or something. Anyways, Love is known for his film The Football Factory and Outlaw and he even executive produced Bronson (which I'll be watching this Friday, yeah!) and even though the short clip we have after the break really doesn't show much of anything I'm expecting great things. I've come to love the whole football hooligan thing and this is a coming of age story set to an 80s funk jazz track. Slated for a fall release.

SFIFF52 Review: Bullet in the Head

26 April 2009 3:56 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Bullet in the Head

Spain/France, 2008, 84 minutes

Director: Jaime Rosales

I doubt I will ever see a movie title play so imperatively in the tone of a film. At least not quite this way. Bullet in the Head, without its bluntly violent title, would have provided a completely different experience for me. If it was called Dude Goes to Coffee Shops, this movie would have been useless. Well, more than it is now, I should say.

I’m not surprised that the movie has not found a Us distributor yet, as it’s unlikely that it would escape the festival circuit. The reason is simple: it’s impossible to market this film. At 84 minutes, it spends 60 of them staring at its protagonist engaging in the most banal activities imaginable. There is no dialogue, since the camera is always positioned at a distance, as if the viewer is a voyeur observing through a P. »
