44 Inch Chest

Brief Synopsis: Colin (Ray Winstone) and his ramshackle group of friends plot revenge on his wife’s lover in this intense, psychological thriller.

Good Points: It’s all fabulous – you expect a gun-totin’ cockney gangster flick whenever you see Ray Winstone’s name in a cast list, but this is completely different. It makes you think, laugh and cry. The characters are also exceptional, particularly Meredith (Ian McShane) and Old Man Peanut (John Hurt).

Bad Points: It may disappoint those who want to see some blood and guts but apart from that, this film is outstanding.

Good For: Showcasing some excellent Brit talent in a way that may not be familiar.

Overall: 5/5
