25 Must-See British Films of the Crime and Gangster genre.
Compiling a list of Best British Films whatever the genre is not a perfect science, ranking them in preference order even less so. This list was originally published in 2015.
If you’re thinking why the hell did I include that or why the hell I haven’t included that? Then leave your comments at the bottom of the page and tell us about your best British gangster films! If you have produced a British Gangster Film that you would like Britflicks to feature then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to feature it.
From the list two acting performances really stick in my mind, Ben Kingsley’s psychotic performance as Don Logan in ‘Sexy Beast’ and Bob Hoskins' portrayal of Gangland Boss Harold Shand in ‘The Long Good Friday’
Funnily enough I kept avoiding watching ‘Sexy Best’ as I didn't believe that the guy who played ‘Ghandi’ could play a Cockney gangster, how wrong was I!
