Hunger....

....Last night Lic and I watched Steve Mcqueen's 'Hunger', a film based around IRA member Bobby Sands who lead a fatal hunger strike within the walls of a high security prison in Nothern Ireland. The film is unflinching in it's realism and brutality, but this is only acheived through exquisite cinematography and attention to detail. Single scenes span up to 10-15 minutes in length, tension mounting all the while. Not your usual Bank Holiday fare, but absolutely brilliant regardless.
