Brighton Rock - film discussion

Graham Greene's classic novel and 1947 film of a violent young criminal gang member is updated to Mods and Rockers-era Brighton. The lead character's Catholic-based fear of death and damnation and his cynical ensnaring of fellow Catholic and innocent eye-witness, Rose, continue to deliver a menacing and powerful thriller.

Themes: Heaven and hell, mercy and damnation, innocence and guilt, prayer and ritual, crime and punishment

Cautions:  Strong language, twice very strong, and strong violence.
