The Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada [DVD]
The Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada [DVD]
Dvd ~ Barry Pepper
Offered by ReNew Entertainment
Price: £2.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow paced - to savour, 6 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Low key, low budget and slow paced modern western - winner of the 2005 Cannes Film Festival with actor/director Tommy Lee Jones receiving a 15 minute standing ovation from his peers. If you enjoyed 21 Grams or Babel, or are just a Tommy Lee fan then don't have any hesitation in buying this one. This is a film to savour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive, 24 July 2016
WARNING: Nesbo's Harry Hole novels are addictive. If you buy this book be prepared for late nights; lots of coffee and short finger nails. Once you have read every book published about Harry; life will resume where it left off.

3.0 out of 5 stars Vincent and Provenzano ROCK, 12 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay, this does not compare with many Mob movies out there (Goodfellas it aint) BUT I bought it to watch Messrs Vincent and Provenzano and I was not disappointed.


Lansky [DVD]
Lansky [DVD]
Dvd ~ Richard Dreyfuss
Offered by Just4-U-Media
Price: £9.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Illeana Douglas (as Anna Lansky - nice to see her again after Goodfellas and her work ..., 31 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lansky [DVD] (DVD)
Richard Dreyfuss as a gangster !! - I had my doubts. However, all my concerns were forgotten as Dreyfuss turned in a stunning performance. In this he was not alone: mention should also be made of the late Stanley DeSantis (a most convincing Arnold Rothstein), Illeana Douglas (as Anna Lansky - nice to see her again after Goodfellas and her work on Six Feet Under) and Ryan Merriman (as a younger Meyer Lansky).

If you like gangster filmographies, you should enjoy this one. Super film, great performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing and truly mesmorising, 11 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Night Film (Paperback)
This book demands the readers concentration - a fantastic read that draws you in (be prepared to stay up VERY late with this one). The webpages and pseudo-Wiki pages that are included in the book create the overwhelming illusion of reality that draws the reader (and the major protagonist) deeper and deeper into solving the mystery. Other reviewers have mentioned the difficulty with Kindle versions in regards to these pages (I take their word for this) - in the book version you can you use a digital camera i.e. with a tablet, that will reveal further pages on the Internet to which you can be taken to other layers of the story. Spooky, riveting, well written and best of all - when you finish you want to start again. Treat yourself.


The Bootleggers
The Bootleggers
by Kenneth Allsop
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A firm favourite, 20 Jan. 2012
This review is from: The Bootleggers (Paperback)
I first read this book when I was 16 years old and "Bonnie and Clyde" mania was sweeping the nation. It helped me to understand the background behind many of the wanna be films that followed Bonnie and Clyde such as St. Valentines Day Massacre, Machine Gun Kelly and many others.

That was a long time ago now, and this book is still on my shelf - much dog eared. It is a wonderful, and at the same time terrifying, record of the events of Prohibition USA written by a consumate and erudite BBC reporter. Alsop does not mollie coddle the reader, but tells it how it was: the corruption, the power, the bloodshed and the futility of it all. Although English, Alsop was not only well travelled but also a US buff and his knowledge shows. The book also includes a photo section depicting the undignified end of some of these wiseguys.

Thoroughly recommended to anyone who wants to know about this period.
