Hard And Brutal - Scum / Romper Stomper / Chopper DVD


Scum: Alan Clarke's Scum shows a vicious system and doesn't pull any of the punches - or kicks - so relentlessly deployed in the battles between rivals in the power stakes that incarceration promotes. It's the brutal story of life in a modern-day Borstal. Run by the violence and cruelty of both inmates and officers the system is a jungle which brutalizes all within its walls. Carlin who has been transferred from another Borstal for retaliation against violent officers is thrown into this human quagmire - and what follows is a harsh and bitter battle for survival. He... realises that the only way is by beating the system at its own game and eventually erupts as leader of a bloody climatic riot. Romper Stomper: Violent but never gratuitous emotionally powerful and never afraid to portray the ugly destructive face of prejudice Romper Stomper excites disturbs and boldly challenges the viewer. Its angry raw story about a brutal lawless group of skinheads is a savage kick in the guts. This is no simplistic street-gang film but a rivetting portrayal of the hopelessness and blind hatred of youth that is both controversial and profound. Chopper: An extraordinary movie about an extraordinary man the highly acclaimed and award winning Chopper is the boldest and grittiest Australian film in decades. Brimming with dangerous excitement and stunning innovation the sensational debut of rock director Andrew Dominik is an exhilarating sharp shock to the system revealing the no-holds-barred story of the notorious Oz criminal Mark 'Chopper' Read. Told in flashback as Read serves one of his many prisons sentences this extreme biography charts the brutal carnage and wicked sense of humour of a man who supposedly committed nineteen vicious murders and got away with it. Mixing startling facts from his nine best-selling books including 'How To Shoot Friends and Influence People ' with stylish pulp fiction to paint an astonishing portrait of a larger-than-life legend Chopper is funny fascinating and frightening and features a show-stopping central performance from Eric Bana Australia's top stand-up comedian.
