A contented ex-villain is forced to do one last spectacular robbery by a psychotic face from his past in this mould-breaking stylish thriller by director Jonathan Glazer.

Brilliant British gangster film - Sexy Beast review by PT

Spoiler Alert
31/07/2014

Gel (Winston's) is a retired criminal living in Spain, not tempted to return to villiany for anything. Enter psychopathic Ben Kingsley, to tryand change his mind for a job back in England ( do the job, do it, do it, yes yes yes yes yes). All the cast are great but Kingsley is something else. A must see for gangster lovers.

Great + intelligent film about London underworld - Sexy Beast review by PV

Spoiler Alert
23/09/2015

This is a superb film - utterly stylish and stylised, as is usual from former pop promo director Jonathan Glazer (who recently directly the deeply disturbing Under the Skin).

The cast is superb - with Winstone capturing exactly the attitude of the white working class who have escaped the multiculturalist mess of grey grime+crime-ridden East London and a government and pc culture which despises them for their race, their class, their culture, to instead live in the sunny climes of southern Spain. OK< so this character is a criminal and not just a white working class refugee from 'vibrant and diverse' London, but his half a million plus Brit neighbours are the same as him in their culture and attitudes.

Congratulations to the film-makers for putting the white working class on screen - because it seems these days you can see any and every culture on TV and film, any ethnicity and diverse culture celebrated - except for the nasty white working class culture of the Cockney Eat End (always condemned as 'racist' by ignorant bigot 'liberals' seemingly unaware of the irony puddle they're sanctimoniously splashing in!)

Ben gobs off. - Sexy Beast review by NC

Spoiler Alert
04/10/2015

Ever since Villain, then Get Carter, we love a good actor doing the hard case London thing. As someone who bought car parts from Richardsons in South London for his MG ZA Magnette, oblivious of the fact it was a front for flashing mains cables about the persons/parts of Kray-connected, I feel well at home Rodney.

Ray just became type caste later, but still has the cred here, and Ben is just the Man.........must be before In Bruges? Similar vibe.
