The Football Factory
Study of football hooliganism and male culture in Middle England, based on the novel by John King.
The main character, Tommy Johnson (Danny Dyer), is a bright but bored 30-year-old with a steady job and close-knit family, who lives for the weekend life of casual sex, lager, drugs - and violence.
Through him we meet three other males in his world: Billy Bright (Frank Harper), a right-wing fascist full of bitterness at a country that he perceives as having failed him; Zeberdee (Roland Manookian), a mouthy hooligan whose life revolves around crime and drugs; and Bill Farrell (Dudley Sutton), a 70-year-old war veteran who tries to enjoy every day to the limit.
Shot in documentary style using a handheld camera, the film realistically captures the lure and potency of football violence.
