The Long Good Friday
Cert: 18 Year: 1980 Length: 114 mins
Quite simply one of the best gangster films ever made. Razor-sharp scipt, top-class acting and brilliant performances from Bob Hoskins as the self-deluding 'master' gangster superbly supported by a vampish Helen Mirren make this a must see experiance. And it's British, with all the action taking place in London. This is the gritty reality end of gangster films and shows modern pretenders how it should be done.
Two decades on, it muscles all imitators
