Link: The Ladykillers
Summary: After an otherwise successful robbery, a group of thieves must face one last problem: a kindly old lady who has discovered their secret and wants to inform the police. The criminals decide they’ll have to kill her. A dark but lighthearted classic bumbling British comedy.
Thoughts: I found this film to be hilarious. Alec Guinness is particularly great as the sleazy crime boss, looking almost as creepy as a younger Christopher Lee, but with ridiculous teeth and nasty hair. The story is a bit slow to get going, and then it’s all-over-the-place, but it’s easy to forgive with its dry unsubtle wit. Great stuff. They don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
