    It's been a long time since I watched it, but how about The Krays?


    Also, Performance and Eastern Promises (set in London, though not a British film).

    @Pete Martin.

    I was wracking my brain for that one. A tidy little, Britpop era, crime film.

    @Steerpike:

    How about not The Krays? Yes, British, yes, crime, but yes, sentimentalising two rotten fuckers who were portrayed as being all right because they took care of their mum...

    And that it is a shitty film anyway. With those two poncey blokes from Spandau Ballet in it. And yes, I might be a little biased growing up around some of the Richardsons...

    How about-

    Let Him Have It,
    Dance With A Stranger,
    Robbery,
    Payroll,
    Hell Is A City,
    The Criminal,


    And for the ultimate crime? Murder. The best place to do it? On a train. Which train? How about the Orient Express?

    Murder on the Orient Express (yes, American Director, but British film) and on the subject of choo-choos-

    The First Great Train Robbery,
    The Great St. Trinian's Train Robbery.

    And returning to my initial outburst, shit films about complete cunts:

    Buster.
    Also starring an complete cunt.

    Anyone wants to hit me up with some heist films while we're at it? I know we got Italian Job on that list, but I might start learning more towards films like that in preparation for The Bank Job(which I'm anxious to see).

    I blame Madonna for a lot of things.

    Doesn't sound like an unreasonable position.

    I don't know about preparing you for The Bank Job, but there's always:

    The league of Gentlemen
    Payroll
    A Prize of Arms
    The Asphalt Jungle
    Rififi (being remade as we speak)
    The Killing (Kubrick directed)

    The League Of Gentlemen was a class act throughout.

    "All present and correct, sir."

    I just saw In Bruges today, and fucking loved it.

    And there's a fantastic old film noir called Blackout that was done by Lippert pictures half a century ago that was all kinds of great.
