RED RIDING:1980 - At last, some intelligent, challenging, original drama! Difficult at times? Yes, but that makes it stay with you. At the start of this film, Warren Clarke as senior cop Molloy, monologues to camera, almost it seems in a trance, reasoning, appealing to the Yorkshire Ripper, trying to understand and almost plead with him…In fact it really gets the viewer though once the Ripper is caught, and it's really haunting and uneasy when he is being interviewed by the police, as he appears just like a 'normal' person, detailing his killings like he was having a chat with someone about football at the local, but this is when the penny drops, when he says no to one of the girls names called out, it's back to the plot of 1974 and the corruption. The ending is as bleak as 1974, and leaves you wanting more and more. Download the movie RED RIDING:1980 and be sure to be glued to the TV screen till the very end!

Yes (Sugar Rush, Lizzy and, no doubt, the savant of film, richie) this is good. It is one of three films that you should watch in the right order; dark, powerful and full of English crime and politics - so quite a sophisticated watch! (sorry richie).
