Layer Cake

A mechanic in the British drug trade finds himself caught in the middle of some dangerous circumstances in this crime thriller. XXXX (Daniel Craig) is a nameless go-between in the British mob who buys drugs from underground wholesalers and them sells them to street dealers, keeping the system flowing and making a tidy profit in the process. XXXX is looking forward to getting out of the game, and has displayed both smarts and caution in how he's handled his business, but before his overseer Jimmy Price (Kenneth Cranham) will let him go, he has a couple of favors that need to be done. First, Eddie Temple (Michael Gambon) is a mob boss whose daughter has gotten hooked on hard drugs and run away from home; Jimmy needs XXXX to find them girl and bring her to him before Eddie's men can get hold of her. Second, Dragan (Dragan Micanovic) is a Ecstasy wholesaler who has had a large shipment stolen by Duke (Jamie Foreman); Jimmy wants XXXX to get the Ecstasy back to Dragan, but Duke isn't eager to sell and Dragan is becoming impatient. Between these two matters, XXXX isn't so sure he'll get out of the business alive, especially after he finds himself falling for Duke's nephew's girlfriend, Tammy (Sienna Miller). Layer Cake marked the directorial debut for Matthew Vaughn, best known as a producer for Guy Ritchie's lad-centric crime movies.

Everything in this movie is interconnected and if you do not watch, you'll be terribly confused. Daniel Craig, playing a smart but street-addicted character, is trying to quit the business of drugs with questionable characters all around him and questionable motives. Just watch and learn about the drug trade. Craig looks like he has what it takes to be 007.

Dont watch this movie if your drunk or you will never figure it out. It is a great movie and Daniel Craig is so awesome!

Man, is this a cool movie. Not only does it have a great storyline, great characters, and memorable acting, the cinematography and production details are as smart and stylish as they get. This film reminds me of "Goodfellas" but is in no way derivative. Daniel Craig's "XXXX" is a fascinating combination of charisma and vulnerability as his well-ordered businessman's approach to the life unravels completely in the face of one bad event after another. At one point he's in so much trouble it's hard not to laugh, but this movie is no comedy. It has some really nasty moments and the kind of What Next? travails that all of us recognize no matter what we do for a living. Michael Gambon, the great Irish actor who plays Eddie Temple, is just an absolute delight. I could have watched 104 minutes of him alone as this character. Don't miss this film---it is a TREAT. By the way, "L4yer Cake" has the best ending I've seen in years. I kiss the hand of director Matthew Vaughn.
