Sexy Beast Reviews

David Ansen
Newsweek
Top Critic IconTop Critic

The talented Glazer keeps things crisp, clean and purposeful. The only flab on this film is around the waist of its sybaritic hero, a working-class crook who has finally gotten a taste of the good life, and doesn't want to lose it.

From the off it's clear at once that Jonathan Glazer will be a ballsy, switched-on film-maker.

Aside from [Glazer's] visual flair and gallows humor, he's still subtracted much more than he's added.

As the mobster Don Logan in Sexy Beast, Ben Kingsley is so intensely frightening that it's as if the actor were on a personal mission to deep-six Gandhi and his loincloth once and for all.

I'm wondering what's so special about a film that has but one guilty pleasure and that's Ben Kingsley spraying saliva-lubricated variants of the F-word.

Its mix of surrealism, coolly chic visuals, and juicy acting leapfrogs it ahead of most of the competition.
