Look Back in Anger (Blu-ray)
Directed by Tony Richardson

Shot by the great Oswald Morris (Fiddler on the Roof), Look Back in Anger opens with an extraordinary jazz-club scene. Trumpeter Jimmy Porter (Richard Burton) - a disillusioned, college-educated bloke, raging against the establishment - works by day on a sweet stall in the market. His middle-class wife suffers the brunt of his tirades but when he vent his anger by having an affair with her best friend, the consequences prove far-reaching for all involved. Tony Richardson's feature debut is the epitome of the kitchen-sink drama that spawned a new genre of British films and heralded the liberated Swinging Sixties. Apposite for current times and still uncomfortably compelling, the film features an astonishing performance by Burton that earned him his second of six Golden Globe nominations.
