Black & White rules!
I saw the last few minutes of this flick on Tyne Tees telly a couple of years after its theater rounds. In that part of England in those days there was only subsequent run at the Odeon, ABC and Majestic and I never got the chance to see it on a big screen. I can always hope.

I also remember the lurid cover on the paperback as it sat on the rack at Boots alongside Brendan Behan’s “Borstal Boy.” I had to settle for Mickey Spillane or Ian Fleming instead.

The film is far more gritty than Billy Liar, but Courtenay is identical in both roles in that he has to triumph over adversity in both films. In this role he rejects the life of his father which was subservience to the mill in favor of living large, but not very. In short he aspired to be a spiv just to blend in. But he needs to impress a couple of birds too, and that takes money — and love of money is the root of all evil.

Then he gets a mini-vacation in a castle stolen by Oliver Cromwell and eventually converted to a government-owned barracks to meet the conveniences of World War II. I have never seen the concrete post with barbed wire any other place than England. In this boot camp styled borstal he has to confront his demons and decide just exactly who he wants to be. The Head has an ax to grind with the local school and naively hopes that sports is the way to channel these boys’ anger. Should that fail, there are posters plastering the walls touting a man’s life in the army. And that’s why this film doesn’t waste a scene.

Americans watching this film might have some trouble with an almost extinct dialect, but human nature does not change.

Favorite scenes 1) when he burns the pound note and 2) the romp on the dunes at Skegness.

downhill marathon
I definitely appreciated this movie. I’ve been wanting to see it for decades, so I was grateful to see it on the DVD rack. But ultimately the quotidian aspects of life in a juvie-penal system and goofs around the house, and the style of film-making are more valuable than its big pronouncement/redemption, that horrible ending.

As it arrived, I was sitting there thinking “Oh please, not the usual dumb, simplistic ending…” but there it was, something out of an eighties teen movie. Tom sabotages his own marathon win as a finger-in-the-eye to both the wealthy and the coaches who are playing him. Gee… you really showed them. It’s just exceptionally dumb, hollow and frustrating, even as a dramatic point. The character regards it as a triumph, but that’s just a testimony to his mental stagnation; he’s exactly where he was at the beginning. In the end all he values is destruction and passive aggression. I hope he enjoys them – it’s all life is going to serve him.

He’ll have plenty of time to relive this one trifling ‘success’ in his life, while he’s stuck in impoverished Stinkburg for the rest of time. Hooray, you were really true to yourself. …and now you can get back to beating your wife.
