MY HATS OFF to Guy Ritchie for creating a frigging masterpiece in Lock, Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels. After replaying this flick over and over this weekend, I’d have to say that it’s one of the BEST flicks I’ve ever seen. The dialogue, the plot, the remarkable characters and their “fucked-up-ness” [if I can coin such a term]. Let’s just say I love the way Ritchie thinks.
Anyhow, thanks to this flick, I’ve become fixated on James Brown’s funky-soul 70s track, The Boss, where Big Chris and his son, Little Chris, take centre stage collecting debts for the mobster, Hatchet Harry. In fact, the soundtrack to this entire movie is absolutely brilliant. I heard elements of Ambient, Drum & Bass/Breakbeats, Alternative Rock, Soul and even some UK Garage — if I’m not mistaken.
