"Sexy Beast"
Ben Kingsley gives a memorable performance as the psychopathic gangster Don Logan and Ray Winstone is terrific as the likable gangster-gone-soft Gal Dove in "Sexy Beast," an offbeat crime drama that has elements of dark humor, as well as a bit of a middle-aged married love story, thrown in. Gal is a professional criminal who has retired with his wife, an ex-porn star, to Spain's Costa del Sol, where the happily married couple leads an idyllic life. But Gal's tranquillity is shattered by the arrival at his house of the barbarous Don Logan, who has come to recruit him for a heist. When events spin wildly out of control, Gal is forced to travel to London and participate in the robbery, and it begins to look as though he may never be able to return to his peaceful life with his beloved wife. I like the acting, the unusual way of telling the story, the visual style, and the dialogue in "Sexy Beast," and I highly recommend this entertaining movie.
