The Gentlemen - Review

Yup, nine days into this whole 2020 malarkey and I’m already behind the times when it comes to the whole ‘New Year’ thing. Some of you may have been wondering where I’ve been for the past four months. 894 more words


The Gentlemen 2020 *****

The Gentlemen ⭐⭐½

The problem/appeal of Guy Ritchie is that if you have seen one of his films, you’ve seen them all, really. His directing is kinetic, if not restless, always with fast edits and deliberately stylish aesthetics and he loves a laddish crime caper, usually set in the East end of London, with overstuffed, convoluted plotting, and raw, misogynistic, maybe even homophobic and racist, dialogue that has more expletives than adjectives. 228 more words
