    One of the most stylish and terrifying films of the 2000s as a retired safe cracker is being coaxed into doing a job by a sociopath as he is played with such ferocity and terror from Ben Kingsley who spouts words that will make anyone scared.

    My review -- this film is now on DVD and this is where I really should stress this project is only for adult viewing. Sexy Beast made a very good profit margin of $28 million the budget was only $3 million, so it was a great return in my opinion. The storyline/contents we meet our lead role Gary as he is retired from his life of crime in sunny Spain but unknown to him someone has come searching his expertise…

    this is real good and in a totally different vein than under the skin, which p much everybody knows him for i know. it starts out with the same tired guy ritchie type "british people doin a heist" deal but as soon as it strays from that every character straight up loses their shit and its glorious

    I somehow skipped this Anglo-Spanish crime drama in the cinemas... Written by Louis Mellis and David Scinto, directed by Jonathan Glazer and starring Ray Winstone, Ben Kingsley and Ian McShane, it'll provide lots of entertainment. It was Glazer's debut feature film, who had previously directed music videos and commercials for companies such as Guinness and Levi, and he did quite well! The film earned Kingsley an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. And even more amazing was that in 2004…

    Part 2 of my Jonathan Glazer Saturday Night Double-Dip

    Balls to the wall fun. That's what this movie represents, to me. It's a stylish crime drama that's not your typical gangster flick. It's got a little bit of heart and a whole lot of humor to it that makes it as rewatchable as they come.

    Of course, it begins and ends with Don Logan, played by the awesome Ben Kingsley. He's only present for, oh, like 25-30 minutes in this…

    One of those movies that has been on my list forever. Glad to have finally seen it. Very surprised by it (though I'm not sure why, considering I've heard great things and it's Glazer). Stylish and smart, if a bit light.

    An interesting take on the gangster genre, with a fantastic performance by Kingsley.

    Unleashing a literal boulder on the tired swank of the British crime subgenre, Glazer builds his debut feature not on flashy con jobs marked by the coolness with which they're executed, but the anxiety with which these jobs and the people associated with them bear down and haunt weak and insecure ex-criminals.

    Gary (Winstone) is a former gangster who has made a modest amount of money from his criminal career. Happy to put his life of crime behind him, he…

    Just a reminder this movie exists, that it has Don fucking Logan in it. That you should be watching this instead of that pompous softcore movie Glazer did with whatshername from those Avengers movies. Because unlike that glorified silent music video this is an actual movie, with characters. Also, because Don fucking Logan will eat your fucking heart infront of you, while he calls you a pig and a cunt. Because you never say no to Don Logan.

    "You're the fucking problem you fucking Dr White honkin' jam-rag fucking spunk-bubble!" ~ Don Logan

    This crime drama was director Jonathan Glazer's feature debut, and he certainly started with bang. Set mainly in Spain, it tells the story of retired safecracker Gary 'Gal' Dove (Ray Winstone), who wants nothing more in life now than to lie by the pool, soaking up sunshine and being loved by his wife DeeDee (Amanda Redman). Unfortunately, his former criminal associates want him to do…

    So, this is one of those post-Lock Stock British crime movies, where the whole point is that you get to watch people with cool voices use profanity in interesting ways and hurt people. 'Cept, this has some distinction in that:

    a) The bad guy, played by Ben Kingsley, is not crazy in the way you normally expect from these movies, where the dude is just sort of hammy, maybe has a tic of some sort, and is even more violent…
