Get Carter: The British Film Guide 6

I.B.Tauris

Get Carter is now widely acknowledged as the finest British gangster film of all time. Released in the dog days of the early 1970s, the film fell out of fashion until the cultural changes of the 1990s gave a new currency to its pessimistic vision of a doomed male within a decaying social order. Before its re-release in 1999, Mike Hodges’ fusion of the crime genre with social realism received surprisingly little critical attention. Steve Chibnall’s book now gives Get Carter the consideration its quality demands. With the co-operation of Hodges and access to rare documents such as call sheets and an early draft of the script, Chibnall places the film in its social context, describes its making, discusses its characteristics scene by scene, and charts its changing status over the last three decades.
