Directed by Jonathan Glazer

United Kingdom, Spain 2000 89 mins.

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.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
