Layer Cake


UK 2004, 106 minutes
Dir. Matthew Vaughn
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Suspense/Crime

Topics: Drugs & Alcohol.


Aroview: A harder-edged version of Britcrime from the LOCK STOCK stable, this has Daniel Craig playing a cocaine dealer on the verge of retirement, 'persuaded' into two last jobs.

Firstly he must track down the heroin-addicted daughter of a mobster, and secondly negotiate the transfer of a stolen load of ecstasy, jobs which find him crashing through all the 'layers' of the underworld 'cake'. Although assembled from familiar parts, this manages to work its fan-boy concepts into a fairly gripping tale, with Craig displaying some of the chiselled intensity that has made him a 007-in-waiting. Scripted from his own novel by J.J. Connolly.
