Sexy Beast

We watched a recording of the much referenced Sexy Beast. This is a film of a retired bank robber who is confronted by people from his past who want him to return for another job.

Ben Kingsley's performance as the title character is certainly powerful, but ultimately I was disappointed by the movie's structure. I thought not enough time was devoted to the bank heist to make it unique or novel, yet enough time is devoted to it to detract from the character study that makes up much of the rest of the film.

In total I thought it was interesting, but not great. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 74.
