THE FIRM 1989 - 68 mins
England in the awful 80s, and Gary Oldman is Clive 'Bexy' Bissell: estate agent, husband of Sue (Lesley Manville), doting father - and 'top boy' in a band of parvenu football thugs. At weekends Bexy leads his Inter City Crew into rucks with the rival tribes of 'Yeti' (Phil Davis) and 'Oboe' (Andrew Wilde), seeking 'the buzz' at any price. Based on a screenplay by Al Hunter, The Firm was Clarke's swan-song, rightly hailed by David Hare as 'one of the few authentic television masterpieces'.
