Sexy Beast in Knightsbridge
The gruesome finale to an all time great British gangster flick
Location: Rutland Mews West, SW7
Description: Sexy Beast is a 2000 Anglo-Spanish crime drama film directed by Jonathan Glazer and starring Ray Winstone, Ben Kingsley and Ian McShane. The film earned Kingsley an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
And so to the plot, well, brutal gangster Don Logan (Kingsley) recruits 'retired' safecracker Gal (Winstone) for one last job, but it goes badly for both of them.
And so to this location, well this is where the Teddy Bass (McShane)takes Gal on a gruesome final journey to murder Harry (James Fox), the chairman of Imperial Emblat.
McShane performance, like all the cast, is superb!
This is a great great movie - a British classic!
