User Reviews

Fascinating,thought provoking ,but is there a point?
24 July 2001 | by CharltonBoySee all my reviews

Strong Language is unlike anything i have ever seen before. It is neither a film or a documentary therefore i struggle to see the point of this. That doesnt mean to say i didn't like it, i did. We follow a guy who is narrating his story about what has happened to him over the last few years and when he gets to certain words in the story such as debt,Racism,Cynical,The Police etc , we have a group of 20 somethings giving there philosophy on these subjects, all being very different people their views differ from one scale to another. Now this is where i have a problem, these people are actors not real people so we are not actually hearing genuine views just stereotypical ones. Because they are actors and not members of the public and because there are many of these actors some of them don't come across as being up to the job. We hear from a Black bouncer and a posh snob who in my opinion spoil this a little because of there poor acting . Having said all this i think what the director has tried to do has worked but next time please let's hear from real people! 7 out of 10.
