Arcade

UK, 1970 (MIFF 1971, Programme 32)

Director: Tony Sinden

An "underground" type film which exalts and satirises the contemporary fascination with violence. Although Brighton is its location, Arcade is somewhat American in feeling, exploiting American movies and advertisements which have become international symbols.
