Ooh! I'll chase that one up ... certainly reads as a decent stab at it.
I'm re-watching a load of stuff I enjoyed back in the '70s and '80s. Back then were more innocent times, but somehow much more gritty. It's that grittiness that just doesn't seem to translate into films made now. Some can - Clint Eastwood can bring it, for example. I think Denzel Washington could. Cheers!
