Here's a snippet from one of my favourite films of recent years, “Sexy Beast” starring Ben Kingsley and Ray Winstone. A british gangster movie, but one that doesn't fall into the usual pitfall of trying to ape the American genre, and inevitably coming across as false. England does not have vaste deserts and cities of skyscrapers. A panoramic style doesn't convince. The closer, almost claustrophobic, atmosphere is far more fitting for this crowded isle.
