"Oh, yeah. Bloody hell. I'm sweating in here. Roasting. Boiling. Baking. Sweltering. It's like a sauna. Furnace. You can fry an egg on my stomach. Ohh, who wouldn't lap this up? It's ridiculous. Tremendous. Fantastic. Fan-dabby-dozy-tastic." - Gal Dove
If you're looking for your seedy Cockney gangster thriller with distinctly arthouse sensibilities, look no further than Jonathan Glazer's Sexy Beast: a slick, stylish 89 minutes of subversive performances and startling narrative structure.
Taking beats from Guy Ritchie's first two films,…
A personal favorite. Endlessly entertaining and re-watchable.
ITS FUC%^NG MAGIC YOU CU*T
Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes.
'You made me look a right cunt'!
Best British film in years!!!
I watch it at least 7 times a year for past 10 years.
I know a lot went over my head, but that doesn't mean I didn't love it.
Great UK Film. Fab Acting. A drama. A Heist Picture. The best damn Ben Kingsley role. See It.
TIFF Prep #1 - About as close to a perfect and complete film as you can get. The story is very simple and gets to it briskly, allowing the performances shine through. The supporting characters are something to marvel at with Ian McShane and Ben Kingsley. They communicate only with long stares to get they're terrifying point across.
I was just really pleasantly surprised by how fun the movie was. Ben Kingsley was just amazingly crazy. I love that the…
"Why are you swearing? I'm not swearing."
This film is perfection.
‘Sexy Beast’ is a top drawer example of what filmmaking is, to me. It nails a balance of allegory and ambiguity. Scenes unfold in completely unique, iconic ways because they must. Dialogue is music. Images arrest. There is a ferocity and passion in every moment. The story is simple, but the tone/mood/emotion within it resonate for miles.
I watched this movie a while ago. Dont ask why I didnt log it on here, just never got round to doing it. I then forgot about it.
The first thing I like abo- fuck it. I'll finish this reveiw later, after I piss.
One of my favourite movies, ever. I wasn't intending to watch it but it started on the movie channel, and from the opening shot, I'm hooked.
I've always loved Ray Winstone, and here he's doing something he's not normally known for (at that point in his career anyways), playing the good guy.
It's a love story at the crux of it. A man in love with his wife and the things he'd do to protect her.
And Ben Kingsley = Legend.
All together now...No, No, No, No, No, No, No!
One of the most underrated films of this century. Ray Winstone is absolutely sublime. Ben Kingsley is a force of fucking nature. Glazer's direction is beyond exquisite. This is unlike any "gangster" film you've ever seen. The overwhelming majority of the first half of the film is just incredibly tense dialogue between Winstone's quiet yet distressed "Gal" and Kingsley's ultra-intimidating and infinitely foul-mouthed "Don". And Kingsley is totally on fire the entire time. I've never seen him this locked-in. It's…
