Ken Loach's Riff-Raff (1991)

Although I no longer associate directly with riff-raff working-class types (now that I'm full-time/tenured), I do still very much sympathize with their plight; here is a great movie about UK riff-raff, by Ken Loach。The film was apparently inspired in part by painter/cartoonist/social critic/outsider William Hogarth (1697-1764)。[Study Guide forthcoming]
