Aro Recommended Scum


UK 1980, 91 minutes
Dir. Alan Clarke
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Cult, Drama / Controversy, Prison


Aroview: Life in a British borstal painted in unflinchingly realistic hues. Clark's deeply affecting indictment of the penal system plays out barbaric rituals in a pitiless, blank environment where the last thing that seems to be served is justice. Unforgettable.
