Brilliant film and the finest performance from the late Bob Hoskins.

Harold: "You don't crucify people! Not on Good Friday! "

although it might appear a classic british "gangster"movie and it does describe the mind set of the old school london crew quite well it is a very accurate observation of how things were changing both in local and global terms.This not only recognizes the big fish little pond aspect of thinking local but highlights how the lines between politics ,crime and commerce are very fuzzy once one tries to look at them.

having met a few "interesting"people from a lot of apparently diverse backgrounds tlgf is imho perhaps the best assessment of those years.
