I'm about halfway through Gangster No 1 right now, and it's pretty fucking perfect. The interior design, the suits, the automobiles....

A favourite of mine.

Some frightening intensity from Considine in some scenes.

^ I'm putting that on my list next. SPOILER ALERT - Dont read if you havent seen Gangster no 1 yet. Is the unnamed gangster part of Freddie May's fracture psyche - and his destruction at the end symbolic of May's rehabilitation?" Im leaning heavily towards this, but I wonder if Im just overreaching.

I've just watched In Bruges, with Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell and Ralph Fiennes. If you'll take the ROI as British, it's worth a watch. Ralph Fiennes and Gleeson particularly good. Funny too.

Gleeson to Fiennes character: 'Harry, let's face it -and I'm not being funny, I mean no disrespect - but you're a cunt. You're a cunt now and you've always been a cunt. And the only thing that's going to change is that you're going to become an even bigger cunt."

I don't think it's anything this complicated. Gangster (Bettany/McDowell) is a separate person from Freddie. At least, I haven't heard anyone else plausibly argue your idea.
