The Long Good Friday

John Mackenzie Großbritannien, 1980

Zachary T.'s rating of the film Rififi am Karfreitag

Makes the hysteria and paranoia of The Troubles timeless (and perhaps timely, in 2016); much of its propulsive power can be attributed to its very simple, effective set-up. Why, in a time of unprecedented prosperity and control, is everything suddenly going wrong? One bad day, one tragedy, is all it takes to turn men cruel, desperate, violent. Bob Hoskins and Helen Mirren realize truly complex people with panache.
