The best gangster movie of all time. Requires several viewings to get all that is happening. Subtitles doesn't hurt either with the heavy accents. On my once a year required viewing list.
It's good friday, have a Bloody Mary.
A really cool British gangster movie. Great performances by Bob Hoskins and a young Hellen Mirren and Pierce Brosnan highlight a story about a gangster’s empire fall apart just about as he tries to move into legitimacy.
Interesting stuff about Thatcher’s England, the rise of the common market, British American relations, and the IRA. An awesome synthetic score but the movie is hindered by a confusing opening scene that is supposed to tie the movie together.
