Little-seen short feature from the 1970s about Irish men in London. It's done in black and white, long takes, and after each scene there's a cut to black. Set in pubs, parks, and pool halls it details various men and how they struggle abroad. Dialogue heavy and interesting it's certainly a bit different and stands out from the director's recent disappointing titles. Kind of similar to what Jim Jarmusch does but less polished and with more politics.
Title: Pint of plain
Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
