Open Fire (UK, 1994) 8/9

submitted by Marvin's Underground Entertainment on 02/04/18 1

Part 8: "It won't always be like this, you know -- copper." Brilliant British true-crime TV film from 1994, produced by Jeff Pope and Simon Shaps for LWT (London Weekend Television), written and directed by Paul Greengrass, and starring Rupert Graves in one of his career-best performances. London, 1982. David Martin -- a provocative, aggressive lock-breaker, jail-breaker, gun-fetishist -- and transvestite -- is released from prison. By 1983, after gratuitously shooting a police officer during a burglary, he's the UK's most-wanted criminal. The Metropolitan Police's panic-stricken pursuit of Martin results in the Met's most notorious 'wrong-man' shooting of the 1980s: the Stephen Waldorf case. No copyright infringement intended. I'm posting this as a public service (from a 1994 off-air video) because it's a crime that this film is unavailable elsewhere (and I'm a massive fan).
