Demi-noir British crime flick. Showman-turned-private dick Eddie Ginley (Finney) on the trail of bungling underworld drugs and guns racketeers. Lean, taught, with quick silver dialogue, the whole woven together with a punchy, acerbic score by a young Andrew Lloyd Webber. Worth watching a couple of times to catch the full nuances of the plot and, of course, to see again the fabulous Billie Whitelaw. Very highly recommended.
