The Long Good Friday

John Mackenzie Großbritannien, 1980

Palmat's rating of the film Rififi am Karfreitag

Considering this is deemed THE british gangster movie I was a bit underwhelmed. The photo, score and direction was spot on but the script and acting left something to be desired. I love Hoskins, and I know many think this is his finest hour, but I had a hard time taking his acting seriously at certain points. Especially the scene at the bath house where he is trying emote grief for Colin. Still a good watch!
