Really, really, really stupid but just what I needed on a Friday afternoon. Oh, and Charlotte Riley's in it.
At the end, did I really hear that right? Prime Minister Clarkson? I think I'd rather be blown up!

A VHS favourite of mine back in the day and still more fun than a bad, Italian Michael Dudikoff look-a-like can shake a katana at.

William Devane, Tommy Lee Jones, Luke Askew, Dabney Coleman and Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. What more do you want?

A few things that stood out:
- After Michelle explains to a teacher why she felt patronised by her: "It's not you, it's your autism speaking". What a witch!
- The sensory-overload of the basketball game.
- The scene when Michelle tries to chat to another woman in a bar during a Pride fest, only for the woman to turn her back to her was heartbreaking!
- What a great mother and boyfriend!
- Cool socks!

For those wondering, there are short clips of the 'Rape of Christ' and 'Charred Bone' scenes on the 2-disc BFI DVD but they are not shown in their entirety thanks to the restrictions imposed on the release by Warner Brothers. As far as I know, apart from bootlegs and youtube clips taken from VHS recordings of the original Channel 4 airing of 'Hell on Earth' there is currently no way to see these excised scenes.
A bloody good documentary on an excellent film but both critic Alexander Walker and Warner Brothers are Grade-A dicks.
The world without Ken Russell and Derek Jarman is a little more dull and pedestrian :(

I used 'Star Trek Beyond' to test my new Sony Bravia 4K 55" TV, Denon 7.2 amp (still using 5.1 speakers) and Yamaha subwoofer. I can now consign my extremely old Pioneer 5.1 system to the dusty attic of forgotten gizmos as the film looked and sounded great!
Death by Rock? Really? Ridiculous fun!
