    A middle-aged crime boss smugly reflects back from 1999, narrating the brutality which made him triumphant - and feared. As an unnamed young hood in Swinging 60's London, he aped his mod boss Freddie Mays, and seemed to do anything for him. But his narration exposes all-consuming envy: of Freddie's supremacy, and especially his tall bird. The baby shark develops his viciousness and backstabbing, scheming to be Gangster No. 1.

    The antidote to the 'gore-blimey-g'v'nor' school of gangster film- making. This is sleekly shot and features scene stealing turns by Bettany and McDowell. Clark Collis
