This is a film to be hugely admired, but not one to be enjoyed. Once in a while, a film gets made that should be watched for the sake of history; Hunger is definitely one of those films. Please see it, but you've been warned that it won't make you feel good.
The film club scale: Dong took one fag break in the 93 minute running time; Shazzerooneypoos was silent throughout; Slocombe used the word "harrowing" in his post-viewing summation; Mrs The Millbrooker was stunned into quietude, as was Dozybean.
I'll say it again - please see this film.
