A violent crime thriller, featuring a stunning performance by the then little-known Bob Hoskins as the brutal Harold Shand. Vigorously directed by John Mackenzie from a screenplay by Barry Keeffe, the film follows Shand's attempts to woo a band of American entrepreneurs to London at the same time as gangland rivalry seems to be destroying his empire. Helen Mirren shines as Victoria, his sophisticated girlfriend, and look out for film debutant Pierce Brosnan as '1st Irishman'. This remains one of the very best British gangland movies.
So those were the Movie-Moron picks for top British movies of 2013. But what was omitted? And which didn’t deserve to be in there? Have your say in the comments section…
