The best British gangster film of all time. The three leads are astounding in their equally compelling respective roles.
Ray Winstone is the rock of this film. The fear he lets escape his face as he tries to keep his mask of confidence from slipping is nothing short of sublime.
Ben Kingsley comes in like a self loathing hurricane of venomous hate who'll piss on the tiles of your floor out of petty jealousy for the happiness you found.
Ian McShane convinces you not only that the devil is real but his presence has been captured in this film. Wielding the power of a stare that will steal your soul.
Jonathan Glazer's directorial flourishes, like his depiction of the rabbit of death waltzing it's way past the patrons of the London restaurant; stopping to lock the sight of his revolver on Gal, sends a thrill through me that confirms the film's status as an effortless classic.
