Enter the life of Pinkie, a gang leader in Brighton, back in the days when the mobs ruled the city. In psychotic, paranoic Pinkie, the viewer gets to witness one of the most calculatingly evil villains ever commited to the silver screen. That said, he is the main protagonist of this great british masterpiece in film noir. As we see him personally attending to a chain of murders, we soon realise he will stop at nothing to cover his tracks.
Brighton Rock is one of the few british noir movies and the fact it is based on Graham Greens brilliant novel by the same name makes it simply unmissable.
Thanks to John Boulting's sharp direction, Richard Attenboroughs stunning performance as Pinkie and Harry Waxmans beautiful camera work we have a superb british film that has stood the test of time and will continue to do so.
