Sexy Beast

United Kingdom | 2000 | 89 Minutes | Jonathan Glazer

SIFF Cinema Egyptian | Presented in 35mm!
The movie that taught the world Ben Kingsley—the man who played Gandhi—could scare the pants off us. Ace safecracker Gal Dove (Ray Winstone) is living the criminal's dream, retired in Spain with his ill-gotten gain and an ex-porn-star wife. Things go dreadfully wrong when his old psychotic pal Don Logan (Kingsley) turns up demanding Gal's assistance in one more job. Celebrated music video director Glazer made a striking feature debut with this stylishly nasty piece of work.
