Fire in Babylon
Time Out says
The film also conflates cricket with Jamaican politics, the problems faced by the West Indian diaspora in the UK and the struggle in South Africa. One minor flaw in the film is its reductive tendency to over-amplify the brutality of the West Indies’ methods; of course, their victories were underwritten by the skull-threatening menace of their fast bowlers but there was no shortage of finesse either. Still, a visceral and evocative film.
