Snatch - REVIEW

Film of the Day #39

Guy Ritchie's follow-up to Lock, Stock is an impressive, full-throttle comedic crime caper filled with eccentric and colourful characters. Brad Pitt steals the show as the bare-knuckle boxer Mickey but he is fully supported by an equally memorable and entertaining cast. Snatch is a swift, sharp picture that pleasures the senses of all levels, ranging from the visual to the aural. The linguistic, and yes even the intellectual. Ritchie’s command of the visual medium is so skilful, his criminals so memorable and his writing so undeniably entertaining he made a strong case for being the British Quentin Tarantino – then he married Madonna!
