221 – In The Name of The Father (1993)

Fancy a shift?

Fancy a shift?

Now that was a film.Very cathartic near the end.Hard to believe that all this shit happened back then.If you haven’t already seen or heard about ITNOTF it’s about a couple of lads who are targeted as the scape goats for an IRA bombing in London in the mid 70’s.It’s got some dark humour and quite a bit of politics from the IRA to the English justice system.I thought the film might have been a bit biased but a quick wiki seems to say that it was pretty much spot on.
