Episode 073: Snatch and The Long Good Friday
Oi! We have a butchers' at some cockney crime!
Crime movies are one of our favorite genres here at MG, from John Huston's grainy noirs to Michael Mann's sleek modernism. But there's something extra special about the British crime pictures - their street-level view of a collapsing empire often feeling grand and gritty simultaneously - and today we take a look at two of the greats: The Long Good Friday, featuring Bob Hoskins' iconic performance as the ambitious-and-doomed Harold Shand, and Guy Ritchie's comic classic, Snatch, which we argue is top-3 Brad Pitt!
