But really - if you haven't seen The Offence then please do.

One of the least obvious films in Sidney Lumet's canon, it shows the 1970s UK in all its shitty, over-masculinised glory. Tons of post-war architecture, plus its almost a two-hander with the marvellous Ian Bannen (one of my favourite actors). The score is great and there are some nice, very Roeg-ish, flights of fancy.

I'm fascinated by images of the UK by foreign directors, and this one is right up there.

I just saw "The Offence" this year.. Good movie.
