The Long Good Friday

John Mackenzie's masterfully directed British crime drama features a star-making performance by Bob Hoskins as Harold Shand, a successful London gangster whose world falls apart over the course of one weekend. Shand controls the London docks and is planning a big real estate deal, financed by money from the American mob and given the okay by the London organization. His world is sweet -- he lives in a fancy penthouse, he owns a yacht, and has a sensitive and intelligent mistress. But suddenly a bomb explodes inside his Rolls Royce, another bomb destroys a pub he owns, and a third is found inside his casino. Shand can't understand who would suddenly want him dead, particularly over the Easter weekend, when representatives from the American mafia are coming into town to discuss investing in Shands's real estate project.

Saw this flick after x years on a transatlantic flight and had to see it again on the return. Bob Hoskin's facial expressions at the conclusion are without equal.

I saw this film several years ago and again recently on pay cable. Bob Hoskins gives a stunning, emotional portayal of a gangster trying to go legit. He's stubborn, brutish and brilliant by turns. Helen Mirren is great as well. A must see if you're a fan of the genre or just a fan of great acting.
