Gentle - The Lavender Hill Mob review by JD

Spoiler Alert
08/03/2016

The pace is slow, the plot simple, the photography absolutely stunning. Good black and white such as this give a texture to the picture which I find better than any high definition colour. Alec G is of course great, Sid James plays a very straight character, pre slap stick. It is about a burglary but it is more than the plot and certainly more than the action which by modern standards is poor. A great film for a rainy Saturday.
