Laughing Sippie here again to shamelessly tell you about yet another fantastic Anchor Bay release







THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY -

How can one even mention a movie such as Snatch with out giving credit to a film that helped breed such films? One of the oldest films of my list yet still one of the most underpraised crime dramas ever. In The Long Good Friday, Bob Hoskins takes the lead as a crime lord in merry old London who is on his way to becoming one of the most powerful and well known criminal underlords until his crew begins to be murdered one by one. As he tries to hold on to his name sake while getting to the bottom of the recent string of attacks against his family of crime, we wathc as his whole world begins to crumble and his paranoia begin to build. An emotional and intense thriller that (in my opinion) should have at least earned Mr. Hoskins an Oscar nomination if not the statue it's self. While watching this film you truly feel everything Hoskins is going through emotionally, from fearless to fearful leading to a silent final scene where the facial expressions leave you speechless!

Now that's how it's done.



I've been meaning to see The Long Good Friday for years... I actually will check it out.
