This review is from: Sexy Beast [DVD]  (DVD)
I get the impression Ben Kingsley did this movie to get as far away from Ghandi as he could. He plays Don Logan, a nutjob of such brooding menace and bantam posturing that you will find yourself tensing during his every second on screen. It is the best performance in the movie but he is run close by Winstone and Redman.
The characters are gangsters but its so much more than a gangster movie, particularly those made by Guy Richie. This is a gangster movie in the same way that the Sopranos is a mafia story and The Wire is a cop show. They only look like that on the surface. The characterisations and subtlety of plot are fantastic.
