Brighton Rock and Roll
In his new take on Brighton Rock, director Rowan, son of Roland, Joffé has shifted the setting forward in time to the early 1960s. A stellar cast that includes Sam Riley, Angela Riseborough and Helen Mirren (not to mention the great Phil Davis) look fantastic in the seedy seaside setting. But isn't this more than an updated tribute to Graham Greene and the hallowed 1947 movie? Isn't there another iconic Brighton movie being exhumed for (scooter and motorcycle) parts?
