Format: DVD
Mitchell (Colin Farell) has just been released from prison. The one thing he has realised is that he never wants to go back, so when 'old friends' offer him work at his release party he is reluctant to accept. Meanwhile, young starlet Charlotte (Keira Knightley) needs someone a bit 'handy' around her property to keep out the hounding paparazzi and hires Mitchell to mind the fences. Mitchell's attempt to go straight is thrown off track when his past catches up to him and places his new employer in peril, will he manage to shake off his reputation and begin afresh with Charlotte?

London Boulevard is a sinuous London Gangster-movie with an all-star cast. Ray Winstone (The Departed) plays the sharp-suited and even sharper-tongued mob-boss with great aplomb. The stunning Anna Friel plays Mitchell's alcoholic sister with panache whilst David Thelwiss (Mr Nice) plays Charlotte's agoraphobic pot-smoking house-sitting personal aid Jordan with true flair, carrying most scenes he is in with his thespian-dramatic mannerisms. There are even familiar names in the smaller parts too: Eddie Marsan (The Disappearance of Alice Creed) plays a crooked cop and Matt King (Rocknrolla) is part of the mobsters inner circle.

Hassle free transaction - no spoilers - just comment on the film.

Didn't really know what to expect with this one - I tend not to read too much about films before seeing them for fear of spoiling my entertainment. It nicely balanced a retro fell with contemporary relevance,

there wasn't much I didn't like about the film.
Knightly was a let down again. I've yet to see her anything where I truly think 'that performance was brilliant'. To be fair the performance here was ok but I think largely helped by the excellent scripting, directing and surrounding cast. she didn't engage my sympathy, she wasn't alluring enough, she didn't really DO anything. Admittedly, her functions were to provide motivation and hope for Farell and to perhaps revel the truisms of life at the end. Ironically the one character that is supposed to be the object of our sympathies hardly even registered on my radar. A shame really as I'd like to see more of her and have her turn in just one star status justifying performance. Or at least do a convincing love scene.
Farrel, who I always have worries about confounded me yet again - the anti knightly if you will - in that every time I see him in a film he is better than I expect. here he could be suave, violent, sensitive, low key intelligent and soulful - but always a presence and the sense of caged power. I could easily see him as a convincing Bond.(one for the future perhaps? )
David Thewlis also gave an excellent performance. subtlety, whimsy whit pathos and liekability all emanated from this character and Thewlis did it brilliantly. Initially I didn't like the character but it just worked and grew before your very eyes.
Winstone is rapidly becoming one of those actors who is always himself 'appearing' in a film 'in the role of...' .

It is a real pity the movie didn't match the story in the book, poor casting by the director as I'd have had Anna Friel playing the ageing thespian as opposed to Keira Knightly playing a movie star that is only famous for shedding her clothing at the drop of a hat

Format: DVD
At the time I read the book London Boulevard by Ken Bruen, it was being filmed in Great Britain by William Monaghan, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "The Departed," who was making his directorial debut. (Monaghan also writes the screenplay for this British film.) LONDON BOULEVARD was not widely shown in American movie houses: it took me a while to find the dvd. I wish I had just re-read the book.

The story parodies the 1950 movie by Billy Wilder called "Sunset Boulevard" by changing cities. In London, an ex-con leaves prison, doesn't want to return, and finds employment as a handyman with a reclusive actress who lives grandly in a large home. Her only servant is a butler. The ex-con soon shares gifts and other favors from his beautiful employer.

The film is well cast. Colin Farrell plays the lead role of the ex-con and Kiera Knightley the beautiful, but reclusive young actress. Beautiful people with not much chemistry...in the movie: Mitch spends his time shooing away the paparazzi. Anna Friel plays Mitchell's sister Briony. In the book she is slightly mad, a confirmed shoplifter, often forgetting her husband is dead. She arrives at Mitch's Welcome Home party "looking like a radiant bag lady" and apologizes for Frank's absence. In the film she is love-crazed and well-dressed...just another ditzy gal. David Thewlis plays an effete butler. He wears wrinkled hippy-like clothes, rarely shaves and has long straggly hair. Wonderful wit but not a bit like the proper and tuxedoed Max Von-something in "Sunset Boulevard." Thewlis plays a careless protector who mainly sits at a kitchen table smoking funny cigarettes and talking about his career as an actor.
