Kixott Movie Nights: Sexy Beast
July 6 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
“Oh, yeah. Bloody hell. I’m sweating in here. Roasting. Boiling. Baking. Sweltering. It’s like a sauna. Furnace. You can fry an egg on my stomach. Ohh, who wouldn’t lap this up? It’s ridiculous. Tremendous. Fantastic. Fan-dabby-dozy-tastic.”
Sound familiar? FEEL familiar? The heat will do strange things to us all, and former gangster Gal (Ray Winstone) is no exception. But thankfully, most of us will not have to endure a surprise visit from memorably psychotic mob recruiter Don Logan (Ben Kingsley) forcing us into the classic ‘one last job’ that plucks us out of what passes for an idyllic retirement in Spain.
The debut feature film of idiosyncractic talent Jonathan Glazer (Under the Skin, Birth, countless cult music videos), Sexy Beast is a British crime film shot sunny side up and angled on ‘crazy’ — anchored by a blistering performance from Ben Kingsley that will have you screwed tight to your seat.
