The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael poster


October 13, 2022


A raw and sobering look at the youngsters of a small fishing community in Britain (the type of town that would play a considerable part in the Brexit victory). The film is bleak and confrontational, some scenes are extremely tough to watch, but at the same time it's what makes this one stand out. Two scenes jump out immediately (the one bang in the center and the finale), making sure you'll be exiting the film with a nasty aftertaste. Impressive though, even after all these years.
