  • 80s british film ID

    There's a film I remember seeing on Channel 4 a couple of times back in the 80s/maybe early 90s

    It was kind of like After Hours but with a female lead swapping Manhattan for a stylised 80s London, had an odd vibe to it. This is literally all I can remember about it, I can't even remember if it was good but something about it has stuck with me & I'd kind of like to see it again.

    Someone round here has to know what it is, I've done a bit of searching but my parameters are a bit vague.

    No idea, but the description reminded me a bit of Smithereens. (except the British bit)
    A film from 1982 with ESG in the soundtrack.

      Never seen smithereens, looks ace so it's on the list now thanks.

      The one I'm after is a bit more late 80s though.

        Empire State?

        Can't remember it having a female lead but it was very 80s and very odd.

        Set around a nightclub with the development of Docklands being the backdrop.

        Total Thatcherist sneak preview of hell.

          It's not that one HC but it looks right up my street

          think this, but more low key mystery/conspiracy.
