Gangsters

It is almost impossible for today's auteurs to make crime epics like The Untouchables, Goodfellas and Carlitos Way (three of my personal faves). I say almost...



Mesrine: Killer Instinct charts the rise to notoriety of L'Ennemi Public Numéro Un - Jacques Mesrine. Bank robberies, prison breaks, kidnappings, murders and even taking a judge hostage during his own sentencing, Mesrine's life is the stuff of legend. And if you have seen Vincent Cassel as the frantic and menacing boyfriend of a rape victim in Irreversible, or as the angry estate kid in La Haine, you will agree that he was destined to play Mesrine.

Whether you will be able to catch this at your local Vue cinema I couldn't say, but it will be showing at Curzon Soho from 7th August. AND as if that wasn't enough... Mesrine: Public Enemy No.1 opens on 28th August!

I can't fucking wait!!!
