As London school-leaver Tony attempts to secure employment, he becomes entangled in boiling cultural tensions between the white establishment and his Jamaican background. Still the seminal portrait of the pressures faced by immigrants in Britain, this remains a caustic denouncement of institutional racism. Raw performances and confrontational politics power the first British film made by a black director ... do not miss out.
