    I haven't heard of that one. Or Shane Meadows. I assume he's Australian?

    Lol Johnno,no he isn't .He lives in Nottingham and a lot of his films are based there.Here you go,he's very very talented.

    He did a black and white film called Twenty four seven about boxing,with Bob Hoskins in. All his films are pretty powerful and he uses Paddy Considine a lot,who is a fantastic actor.He is soon to release another film called "This is England".
    They often dont make for comfortable viewing,but Romeo Brass was moving.

    Cheers Su. :)

    He sounds good, so I'll try to remember the name. (Although at my age, that can be a bit of a challenge! ;) )

    Greeting Johnno
    Ooh yea nice choiciest cuts. Especially the first. That Bobby Hoskins, what can you say..

    And i bet i wasn't the only one that really wanted to see him see to Jessica Rabbit! :eek:

    The Long Good Friday, now that's a proper movie!

    In that vein:

    Scarface ( Al at his finest)

    Gangster No. 1.

    Sexy Beast (Ben Kingsleys performance is unforgetabubble)

    Just goes to show, what goes up, must come down. And the world is mostly an unforgiving place .. mostly.

    And we've seen too many movies! ;)

    How does Ganster #1 move you?
    Personally it just makes me sad that Malcolm McDowell never had the career he should have done.

    'The Long Good Friday' is a great film - but it's hardly 'moving'!

    Ditto 'Scarface'.

    Lol are you nuts man!

    When Tony M makes his last stand and gots shot to ribbons! :eek:

    The downright scheming and treachery of the first one was moving i guess - and the climax, just not in the soppy sense I suppose..

    Here's one for you Johnno - Stand By Me. That was a very 'moving' flim. Nice soundtrack to boot.

    I think it's hard to be moved by a character's death if you can't identify with them or feel much of a connection.

    The geezer in 'Scarface' is really an anti-hero, so while his death scene is dramatic, it didn't exactly tug at my heartstrings.

    I suppose the end of 'The Long Good Friday' is slightly moving, because you see the emotions flitting across Harold's granite face as he resigns himself to the fact that (a) he's been outwitted, and (b) he's going to die. But at the end of the day, he's an anti-hero too. He's not a character you can really engage with.

    I don't know that one. I'll look it up...

    Did you like Babel just as much? I think I liked Babel better. I have a friend who says that these movies make her ashamed to be an American. I view them more as stories about individuals, rather than a treatise on the nation as a whole.
