Product Description

His vision exposed a real world of raw life like no others. His career inspired a group of actors, writers and directors that changed movies forever. In these acclaimed dramas from the late Alan Clarke, experience the unsparing work of the director The London Observer still calls "the greatest British filmmaker of his generation."

THE FIRM
Gary Oldman (SID & NANCY, JFK) gives a blistering performance as Bex Bissell, a middle-class family man who also leads a violent gang of soccer hooligans. Philip Davis (VERA DRAKE) co-stars in this scorching drama directed by Clarke that critics have called a modern-day A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.

ELEPHANT
In the film that The Village Voice hails as "Clarke's masterpiece" and would become the direct inspiration for Gus Van Sant's award-winning movie of the same name, Clarke and producer Danny Boyle (TRAINSPOTTING, 28 DAYS LATER) explore the political violence of Northern Ireland via the stark and brutal depiction of eighteen separatist murders.

MADE IN BRITAIN
Academy Award(r) nominee Tim Roth (RESERVOIR DOGS, PULP FICTION) made his unforgettable film debut as Trevor, a ferocious teenage skinhead whose random acts of racism, vandalism and violence send him on a snarling spiral through England's justice system. This is the unsparing portrait of youth fueled by rage and hate prowling an empire ruled by repression and despair. It remains a shattering cinematic experience that could only be MADE IN BRITAIN.

Great job from the folks at Blue Underground Entertainment!!! It's great to see these British classics directed by the late Alan Clarke on DVD!!! See Tim Roth(Rob Roy,Pulp Fiction) and Gary Oldman(The Fifth Element,Harry Potter films) before there were big names,but thier performances in these films are awesome just the same!!! Includes three Made for British Television classics("Made In Britain","The Firm",and "Elephant")directed by Alan Clarke on 2 DVD's!!! Rare,obscure gems!!! Two thumbs up!!! Five stars!!! A+

Well The Firm was a great movie. It was a very good depiction of soccer hooligans in England but this one touched on the normal lives outside the arena of violence. It was really interesting to me... The other movie (Elephant) was EFFEN RETARDED! It made no sense at all and it was boring. I stopped the movie halfway through it was so bad. However, The Firm made the purchase worthwhile. I would recommend it to anyone who is fascinated by British Football Holligans. Just don't expect much from the other flick.

Made in Britain is a MUST SEE too so don't miss it. I love that film!
