Ironically given my post of yesterday I ended up watching Brassed Off on early morning television this morning in Washington. I was surprised to see it on the US, but then the political context would not be clear if you didn’t live through that time. It was a period where whole communities were destroyed in pursuit of ideology masquerading as efficiency. Stephen Tompkinson’s performance in particular was outstanding, and his speech to children in the church before he attempts suicide moved me to tears. How this powerful historical testimony can be classed as a comedy I don’t know.
