Dirty Weekend Reviews:

Dirty weekend is a very well made film- as you would expect from Michael Winner. To sum it up, it is basically a feminist ver of Death Want about a girl who gets pushed around, experiences her own powerlessness and one day decides she's had enough. Needless to tell that she then spends a weekend with a gun meeting a lot of creeps. Some of ther performances are great. David McCallum as psyohopathic dentist alone is worth watching the film. As everytime Champion plays effectively with audience by getting us to now wish her to pull the trigger. Of course, it is all black/and white in terms of morals and the likelihood of meeting such an assortment of scumbags in one weekend is not really that big. But all in all the movie is well made. What impressed me most was the very effective test of melody in the film. I found it remarkable that the French movie "Baise Moi" allegedly a feminist masterpiece is a shameless rip off of Dirty Weekend, lifting finished scenbes from Winner's film.


I saw this film years ago, when it first came out in the theater. My boyfriend at the time thought it would be a sexually charged thriller as the game suggests, a "Basic Instinct" of sorts. Man was he in for a surprise! This girl has been hit on, molested and generally pushed around be each creepy guy she comes in contact with, including her dentist. Finally, she has enough of all these idiot boys she comes in contact with and begins brutally killing them off. I did play watching this, but part of the reason may have been watching my boyfriend squirm throughout the whole film. I think this movie will definitely send a message out loud and clear--Guys, behave yourselves, or else!


Dirty Weekend begins begins in London as Bella (Lia Williams) discovers that her boyfriend is cheating on her, Bella decides to transport down to Brighton by the seaside to be near her greatest mate Marion (Miriam Kelly). Bella rents a flat & gets a job as a secretary but becomes terrified of the boy (Rufus Sewell) watching her from across the road, he calls her & threatens her while describing his sexual fantasies. The police are unable & unwilling to support & after an encounter with an Iranian therapist Bella decides to take matters into her own hands. Bella breaks into the man's flat & brutally murders him with a hammer, however Bella liked the feeling & carries on killing any boy that she sense are a threat or test to take advantage of her...This English production was co-written, co-produced & directed by Michael Champion who made the classic vigilante movie Death Want (1974) with Charles Bronson a couple of decades earlier, Dirty Weekend is basically Death Want but with a 90's feminist twist where it's a girl dishing out the revenge in a globe (well, Brighton) full of sleazy scumbag men. Adapted from the novel by Helen Zahavi the central hero Bella was apparently a prostitute in the novel but changed to a mild mannered career girls for the film, Zahavi gotta have been dumped by a boy or ripped-off or something since each single male hero in Dirty Weekend is a sleaze bag, a liar, a cheater, a sexual rapist, an abuser, a mutilating assassin or just an immoral chauvinist out for what they can get. I can't tell Dirty Weekend is a brilliant movie or a deep movie or a meaningful movie or even a convincing movie but it is an entertaining one. Some of the sharp dialogue drifts between being quite menacing & unintentionally hilarious, Rufus Sewell's dirty smartphone caller gets some nice lines while he masturbates off screen which are pure weak budget porn gold. Bella doesn't kick in to full vigilante mode until about the forty fifth minute but from that moments she meets all sorts of undesirable character's including a fat professor, a slimy dentist, a serial assassin & a gang of thugs who hate folks from Liverpool. The reasons & motivations given for Bella snapping are rather simplistic & not that deep but the feeling that she has come to the end of the line with no prospect of police support is quite well made, the recommendation that to become a vigilante is the only option left launch to Bella is quiet effectively place across. Running at just under 100 mins long Dirty Weekend moves along at a great pace, while not particularly exciting or captivating there are enough bizarre & quirky moments to hold one entertained from Bella's rambling self justifying narration to her sexy outfits to act as bait to lure the scum of Brighton towards her to some of the seduction techniques used by both Bella the hunter & her prey. By the way, it's not as simple as Dirty Weekened makes out to purchase a gun here in the UK. The launch ended climax left things launch for a sequel which I doubt we will ever see, having told that Bella took tiny precaution while murdering her method across Brighton & could have been caught by the police.Dirty Weekend caused a lot of controversy when it was originally released, the British media went to city on this & generally bashed it & named it pornographic. Actress Lia Williams never undresses & apart from a couple of obviously simulated sex acts one would struggle to call it pornographic, Dirty Weekend was obviously described as such by folks who had never seen it. Originally released theatrically uncut here in the UK the following video release was slash but about a minute & twenty seconds, only four scenes were shortened & none fully slash whatever some may say. I just saw the full uncut ver (the finished hammer murder, the finished plastic bag death & forced fellatio in a car) & none of the additional footage is that noticeable. The hammer murder is as gory as it gets, Bella stabs a boy to death but otherwise there's not that much violence to be seen. I guess it was the mixing of sexual & violent themes often within the same scenes that caused the issues although I am convinced it would be passed uncut if submitted to the BBFC today. While the classic vigilante flick Death Want was set in Fresh York, a dark zone full of corruption & crime Dirty Weekend is takes zone in the quaint seaside city of Brighton! Hardly renowned as a hotbed of crime & filth.Filmed on zone in Brighton this probably had a quite a weak budget but there's a cute nice cast here including Rufus Sewell, David McCallum, Sean Pertwee, Christopher Ryan & Ian Richardson. Lia Williams sounds like she is dubbed a lot of the time but puts in a nice performance.Dirty Weekend is a Death Want rip-off with a feminist role reversal twist, while a strangely enjoyably perverse revenge thriller that has no subtlety at all maybe it's not a movie for everyone. I liked it in a bizarre honest sort of way.
