slate has a nifty little story about the film "layer cake" today. it's about cockney ganster films and why they seem to do so well on DVD, but not in theaters. apparently, people like to be able to rewind scenes a few times to pick up extra bits of that jumbled mess of english language. i think people just have a hard time finding movie houses near them that show these flicks. but what do i know...

i do know that the straight up smoothest, most sophisticated cockney gangster flick of all time would have to be "gangster no. 1" starring paul bettany and malcolm mcdowell. this one is just buttery smooth. the gangsters just have strut and style that makes this film so alluring.
