    Fun list! Way to bookend with Hodges films.

    I'll Sleep When I'm Dead…. Excellent film. I guess I needed to read your list to mentally note comparison's to the director's earlier classic, Get Carter.

    Nothing better than a list that has a bunch that I've seen and can nod my head in agreement with, as well as several that I've needed a proper reminding to check out.

    Bring on The Long Good Friday and The Lavender Hill Mob!

    I haven't seen many of these, but I love The Long Good Friday. Hoskins is so good in that. He's trying to go straight, but you can see the brutality right under the surface. He's also great in Mona Lisa, another great British gangster pic.

    Nice Collection of Movies, But I think the best one is The Italian Job. I saw that film at 21 times. The Lavender Hill Mob is also nice one.

    Nice list, but I'd add "Performance", with Mick Jagger and Edward Fox, dir. Nick Roeg.
