I love British mob films and Layer Cake is a great one. It’s beautiful to look at, consistently surprising and sometimes really funny. It’s got style to spare and had me scratching my head a few times, which is always good. Guy Ritchie injected new life into the genre but he seems to have been neutered by Madonna and/or Kablahblah. So it’s great to see talented new directors like Matthew Vaughn making this kind of stuff. I was hooked instantly by the gorgeous, hypnotic opening sequence. Go see it!!
