Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 17 July 2005
"Brighton Rock" still stands the test of time fairly well, largely due to a memorable performance by Richard Attenborough as Pinkie Brown, a vicious and thoroughly unpleasant gangster in 1930's Brighton. His menacing presence pervades this film from start to finish as his murderous exploits lead him into a relationship with a naive waitress who is a potential witness to a crime he committed and into conflict with rival gangsters and a determined Mrs Marple figure. There are religious overtones to the film, with Pinkie's girl being a staunch Catholic and her unconditional love for him is held up in contrast to Pinkie's coldness to her and the total absence of love in all aspects of his life. Good and Evil are shown in "Brighton Rock" as being absolutes and the result of the presence of God's grace and its absence respectively. In years to come, films like "A Clockwork Orange","Good Fellas" and "Scarface" would all bear echoes of "Brighton Rock".
