...is the title of the introductory essay on the history of the British crime film. This is the first serious attempt to analyze this genre, and it was about time! Although "British Crime Cinema" was published in 1999 and does not include anything about Guy Ritchie's films (accept for a short quote) it investigates all major crime films thoroughly. The stress, of course, lies on the two most prominent examples "Get Carter" and "The Long Good Friday". The focus lies also on gender-analyses of certain films. Do women lack criminal credibility? ;-) A book that should find its place in every library!

I decided to read this prior to my PhD Viva because of the chapters on Get Carter, The Long Good Friday and especially Leon Hunt's piece on The Squeeze, which is about the only academic assessment available of the film. They were all well researched and insightful. The chapter which included It Always Rains on Sunday was an added bonus!
