When people talk about classic British gangster films, invariably they mention Get Carter or The Long Good Friday, yet other classic British gangster films like Villain starring Richard Burton are frequently ignored. Moreover The Hit (1984) directed by Stephen Frears, starring Terence Stamp, John Hurt, Tim Roth & Laura Del Sol is certainly a very much overlooked British gangster film.

Glengarry Glen Ross is not just a play about salesmen; it is a portrayal of greed, fear, deception, theft, loyalty, callousness and decay.  Set in the early eighties, focusing on four real estate salesmen in uptown Chicago, who are failing to meet their targets, and in doing so they are not given any good leads.  Glengarry Highlands and Glen Ross Farms are the real estate developments, with hot prospects.

Prisons, with their collection of colourful personalities, is bound to create a melting pot of incidents and situations, that makes everyday a challenge and eventful for the staff and inmates. A habitation, where acts of humanity and brutality rub shoulders regularly.

The British gangster movie, tales of no messing geezers, who conduct shady deals whilst evading the long arm of the law. Fellas who like to have a drink with the lads, buy their mothers flowers and have a bit on the side.

The femme fatale is one of the most alluring characters in a novel, comic or film. They are usually beautiful, charming and seductive. She uses her exquisiteness and deep sexual attraction to manipulate men in order to reach her goal. She flaunts, flirts and switches between seductress to damsel in distress at the drop of a hat. More than capable of changing the tyre on her car, but would rather wait by the roadside and let some man run to the rescue and do the dirty work. She looks on, powdering her nose and contemplating what other uses the hapless fool may have.
