La Haine (1995)

At a glance:
Among the top ten finest films ever made - if you disagree, you have no business here readin this blog. Reportedly shown by the French PM to his Cabinet, to let them know the state of affairs the nation was faced with. Gritty, existentialist tale of three friends - each of whom represent a response class in the socio-political anarchy that is the youth of France. Give them a policeman's handgun and watch the movie eat you up.
Perennial wonderment:
Vince Cassel, the French fucker who married Monica Bellucci. He's a badass character actor that only similar bastards (like me) can appreciate. Spent his whole career playing psychotic bad guys and in this movie he's got the role of a teenager who could have been the younger version of all the Vince Cassel bad guys you ever watched.
Reminds me of:
My best mate Lanky B, who is just about the toppest top geezer who ever left South London. It's his favourite film and he introduced it to me.
Watch out for:
The climax.
Most memorable line:
Well it's not the most memorable line but there's a 1-min monologue about a guy who took a shit in the bushes and couldn't get back on the train because he's always pullin his trousers up.
