3 Stars (out of 4)

'Beast' of Burden

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

A retired gangster (Ray Winstone) living in a Spanish villa receives a visit by the sinister, charismatic Don (Ben Kingsley), insisting he come back to England for "one last big job." Though this sounds like a creaky, decades-old plot, Sexy Beast, directed by Jonathan Glazer, splashes new life into it. Literally, it turns out, when a runaway boulder nearly squashes Winstone and lands in his swimming pool in the film's first few minutes. An astonishing underwater robbery scene highlights this amazingly staged and acted film. A must-see.
