The Brute is a typically fast and furious British "exploitation" film directed by an expert in that field, Gerry O'Hara. Model Sarah Douglas is browbeaten (and beaten in other ways) by her behemoth of a husband. Drastic measures seem to be called for, but to whom can Sarah turn? This slightly unsavory melodrama is unusually well cast, with Julian Glover and Peter Bull prominent among the supporting actors. Also in the cast is Bruce Robinson, who later opted for a career behind the cameras as a writer/director (The Killing Fields, Withnail & I, etc.) The Brute should not be confused with the vastly superior Bunuel picture El Bruto.
