Sexy Beast

Famed music video director (Radiohead, Blur) Jonathan Glazer’s first feature updates the classic heist film with equal doses of sharp comedy and chilling menace. Gal (Ray Winstone), a London gangster retired to the south of Spain with his porn star wife and pool boy, is reluctantly pulled back into a life of crime by his old mentor, Don Logan (Ben Kingsley), a frighteningly and hilariously unhinged maniac. “Spouting profanity, staring daggers at any perceived enemy, and talking nuts to himself in a mirror like De Niro in a Cockney Taxi Driver, Kingsley creates an unforgettable monster.”—Rolling Stone.
