Scum

Scum

Director: Alan Clarke
Year: 1979

A landmark expose of Britain's violent reform schools, Alan Clarke's SCUM is a controversial shock to the system. Originally made for TV in 1977, the BBC withheld the program from release, due to its intense depictions of suicide, rape and racism. Refusing to be censored, Clarke reshot the film as a theatrical feature in 1979, making his attack on the borstal system even more scathing, and it is the latter, more vitriolic version that is available from Kino Lorber.
