Summary: Mod favourite and stalwart of british cinema, it has a great soundtrack and is a decent examination of the tribalism of youth culture. It's a little self important and pretentious in places (not unlike your average teenager in fact!) but it has some great moments, particularly involving the relationship between childhood friends who find themselves "enemies".
Conclusion: The quality of blu ray transfer with this film is totally pointless. I had a better quality VHS, back in the 80s. Grainy and very lack lustre. What really makes me angry is that a Criterion release of this Film is available in America. Completely restored 5.1 soundtrack, and perfect picture restoration, with new extras. Why on earth is this not available in the UK, where i am positive it would be far more appreciated.
