BritCinema's hoodie obsession

Another great article from the Film Guardian (you might have heard me mention this before...), highlighting, with plentiful examples from the past decade, the trend to use so-called yobs/hoodies/thugs (i.e., depictions of your generation) as the monsters in a succession of Brit-flicks, whether horror or straight drama. See Jane Graham's article here
