  1. I agree that ID was watchable in parts not least due to the rival hoolie firms representing mythical clubs from Shadwell and Wapping.

    But that movie and the original version of The Firm never glorified the violence. Love, on the other hand, is steeped in it. I think it’s always telling that the purveyors of hooligan porn have clearly never been within 10 miles of real life examples. If they had, they would realise there is nothing glamorous about it.
