I love Michael Caine. He's great both on and off screen. Madness has a song about him. He speaks during part of it.

"Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch" are in my top ten list of non-Italian/Irish/Jewish gangster movies. As you likely know, real gangsters appear in those films. They give them more authenticity. Ritchie's mob flicks have a certain cool vibe that jibes with me.

Give Gangster No 1 a try detective,it stars malcolm mcdowell (pretty good actor) just imagine a english version of scarface/american psycho.I bought it with much lower expectations,bought it for 3$,turned out to be pretty damned good  :tu:  Well worth 3$ haha

Thanks for the suggestion. You can find cheap gems in bargain bins and mega stores. I bought a DVD with more than ten episodes on it. Like your recommendation, it cost just three green Washingtons!

There is one reality with billions of versions.

It is a bit of a strange movie,if you buy it give it 2 or 3 viewings because it is needed to fully appreciate the story line.As i said well worth watching  :tu:

Has anyone seen Ricky Tognazzi's La Scorta (The Escort, 1993)? Personally I haven't but said to be great foreign film.



"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Yes, it is Italian. I don't mind subtitles at all if it means avoiding a terrible english dubbing.

Just gives me an actual headache when trying,almost the same way when i was a child and tried reading while going down the road in a car haha.Sounds like a decent film,had heard about it before,soon as i get a few words down in Italian i will give it a try.Thanks for the reminder,have heard good things about it in the past just kind of forgot about it  :tu:

I like some quirky movies. Films, by the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino, are about as far as I go, though. Lynch flicks might be my own celluloid Rubicon. "Eraserhead" disturbed me for days!
