Ruben Lomas reviews Green Street
What do you get when you mix brutal violence, a bit of impressive camerawork and some absolutely appalling politics? You get the ultra-reactionary mess, but still bizarrely entertaining film, that is Lexi Alexander’s Green Street.
The Green Street Elite are a West Ham United football firm. Its members are all working-class men. Their portrayal in this film owes debts to Fight Club and Taxi Driver, both of which which looked at how alienation can lead to senseless and brutal violence.
