This film is amazing- it captures the Kray's reign with accuracy, humour and style. Gorgeously filmed, brilliantly acted (if Tom Hardy doesn't win awards there's something very wrong) and deftly written. There's also some great humour in this movie. Hardy as Ronnie is like some kind of comedy genius. At the screening I went to a portion of the audience were hanging on every one of Ronnie's words and laughing along with him.
But above all the film is like a love letter to London. The locations are beautifully filmed and the whole film feels authentic to its time.
Oh, and this film is violent as hell. One fight scene involves Ronnie using a hammer in each hand instead of his fists. You've been warned.
I found an old VHS copy of this in a Sydney video store.
Its an amazing documentary about gay oppression around the time of the first Sydney Mardi Gras in 1978. The police played their part in making sure that things didn't go smoothly.
I felt like I was watching vital gay history taking place before my very eyes. Absolutely amazing!
The voice-over for this film is by Jude Kuring aka Noeline Burke from Prisoner: Cell Block H. And a fine voice she has too.
This documentary is a welcome antidote to the lethargic times we live in where demonstrating and crusading against injustices is considered old hat and sooo 1970s!
This documentary is part of gay history and thus is very important. If ever there was a time capsule this should be included.
Why isn't this film more readily available or released on DVD?!!
