This has Stacey Keach, David Hemmings, Freddie Starr, Edward Fox et al and Stephen Boyd as a particularly nasty villain.
Apted piles on the grotesquery and the squalor, and the bank job gone wrong ending is superb.
The plot revolves around drunk ex-cop Stacey Keach trying to do a British accent. He's a good actor but his accent just sounds weird. Besides the accent though, he's got an ex-wife who is now married to a much nicer man with a lot of money. Like all women of this nature are want to do, she gets kidnapped with her daughter and held for ransom. Her new husband tells Stacey Keach about it sending Stacey out on the road to redemption and hopefully overcoming being such an alcoholic mess.
Admittedly, I make it all sound a bit trite but it's actually pretty good. The movie isn't overly stylized. It's very matter of fact. None of the camera shots are chosen to accentuate displays of bad behavior or taste. It's all surprisingly pleasant for a movie where a woman gets abused for a good portion of the running time.
I guess maybe in the end, that's the real flaw of the film. It's all so rather pleasant for such nasty subject matter. The situations get tense but the manner in which it's shot makes it feel like a rather risque episode of Master Piece Theater. I half expected Prince Charles or Diana Rigg to introduce it and ask me to fund PBS.
So, yeah, jokes aside, I recommend the movie. There's a plot. Character development. Stacey Keach. A line of great British character actors. A completely weird tone that is happy to whack you upside the head whenever. It was worth the 20 I spent on amazon for it.
