Surprised me - Bronson review by MB

Spoiler Alert
16/11/2017

I generally avoid films with violence in - but rather than feeling gratuitous, this portrait of 'Britain's most violent prisoner' is presented more as a puzzle: 'Why was he so violent? What lies beneath the violence?'

The presentation is more arthouse than, say, The Sweeney (that's the best reference I can come up with, I said I don't watch violent films) - it's quirky and stylish without being pretentious.

Tom Hardy is great - and the whole supporting cast is believable. Left me feeling intrigued and curious to know more about this guy.

Great also to hear New Order on the soundtrack.

Excellent biopic - Bronson review by PV

Spoiler Alert
10/02/2011

This excellent biopic wilol not doubt confuse some people - it is not straightforward and uses various devices to give an impression of this man's sad life. I liked this. I did not fond it pretentious or boring at all. And the acting is top notch - the actor playing Bronson gets it just right. I would recommend this film - and perhaps would even say it should be shown in schools so kids know that crime or prison is not glamorous at all! Recommended.
