Now, I'm not a man who often says that the British scare me, but the meat factory scene, tossing us in a sudden upside-down POV shot is pretty darn chilling. And it lasts a good long while... or rather, a long good while.

Bob Hoskins. Watch him work his silly Brit magic underbite to perfection! And here I thought Hoskins invented that full-frontal display of his lower quadrant incisors for his Hoover impression in "Nixon". No sir! There it is way back when in 1980. This is 110 minutes of Bob Hoskins spouting hoop dreams about the future economic vitality of London and then progressively seething more and more ingloriously as the film unfolds. It's a thing of magnanimous beauty. I enjoyed my travels through the film immensely.
And now -- since I am sure that you have not had your fill of Hoskinsy good, I present to you now:
A Very Merry Bob Hoskins' Ivory Tribute!
We must learn from this man while there is still time. We must.
