Movie: Ray-&-Liz-(2018) On the outskirts of Birmingham and the margins of society the Billingham family perform extreme rituals and break social taboos as they muddle through a life decided by factors beyond their control. At times shocking and laced with an unsettling humor, three episodes unfold as a powerful evocation of the experience of growing up in a Black Country council flat.

It may be dour, but the film is also vital, edgy and progressive. It also must be noted that it’s very funny at times, in a brutal human comedy sort of way ('Good Thing' by Fine Young Cannibals plays over the end credits). To be put off by the uncomfortable themes, unglamorous urban location and prevailing sense of gloom that permeates ‘Ray & Liz’ would be a big mistake. This drama crackles with angry energy, and reflects how grim life really was and, unfortunately, still can be for large parts of the population. - Jake Watt Read Jake's full article... https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/arti... read the rest.
