Bob Hoskins charms as a London mob boss brokering a development deal with the American mafia – but somebody wants to see him dead.

Gangster 1979 109 mins

Director: John Mackenzie

Overview

In arguably his most iconic performance, the great Bob Hoskins delights as Harold Shand, an aspiring mob boss who simply cannot catch a break. Careering around the grubby streets and docks of 1980’s London, this visceral, highly charged and evocative portrait of underworld relations benefits from a superb cast of character actors, including Helen Mirren as Harold’s loyal but put-upon girlfriend.
