Ilkka recommended Harry Brown the other day.
I watched the move on Saturday, while my wife went to a birthday party for one of her law school friends. I’m pretty sure this particular friend has been turning 32 for the last five years.
Anyway, Ilkka’s one line description of the movie is going to really tough to top: "a pretty solid movie adaptation of Theodore Dalrymple’s essays."
I’ll give it a shot though: This is basically the movie that I would write if someone gave me three hours in which to write a movie and I’d already had a few martinis.
Imagine if the slums of Britain were filled with white people and one old guy went on a vigilante rampage against the slum-dwellers. You get Harry Brown.
