The Long Good Friday

Anyone remember the sensational 1979 British mob movie called The Long Good Friday? It starred a cruel and frightening Bob Hoskins as a British mob boss sweating a big deal that's gonna make him rich and legit. His acting is dynamite.

Starring with Hoskins is my favorite actress Helen Mirren as Hoskins upper-class girlfriend in a great, layered performance. Check out recent unretouched photo of bikini-clad Mirren below taken mid July 2008. She's 63 years old, folks!

Rent The Long Good Friday (a movie that holds up great after almost 30 years) for a glimpse into raw fear.

While you're at it, check out the movie Sexy Beast with Ben Kingsley. He made my skin crawl with his portrayal of an evil British mobster.
