    • Item: Snatch (R, 2000) movie Location: by: Famous

      Snatch is the film that convinced me that Guy Ritchie is really a genius. He directed this insanely funny film about a diamond heist.

      There are so many fantastic actors in this movie that I’d probably use this whole page to name them.

      First and foremost is Brad Pitt, whose “Pikey” accent is


      to-die-for.

      Other mentionables include Benicio Del Toro, Jason Statham, Alan Ford (as the despicable Brick Top) and of course Dennis Farina.

      This movie is fast paced, and filmed in the grainy way that Ritchie is known for.

      His meticulous placement of characters is what really makes this film work.

      The humor comes from the absurd situations ...


      • that these crooks find themselves in, and the spit-fire sarcasm emanating from the mouths of both Turkish (Statham) and Brick Top.

        I think that only people who appreciate dark humor and/or foreign cinema, will really think this film is good.

        I watched it first in the movie theatre.

        But I must say that I enjoyed it much more once

        I bought it.

        Watching it in the theatre, it’s very easy to miss the subtle humor, especially if the people around you are noisy.

        Plus, there are so many nuances, that you’ll want to press rewind just to absorb them all.

        This movie is truly a classic.

        It’s one that you can watch again and again and again without getting bored.
