Layer Cake

I was bored so I was feeling of watching movie. Since I don’t have any new movie, I decided to go with “Layer Cake”. One of my all time favorite, the movie is said to be the ‘audition’ tape for Daniel Craig’s James Bond role. Well I think it’s a lil’ bit farfetched, coz I do think that Layer Cake is a better flick than Casino Royale. Make no mistake, I love Casino Royale. But doesn’t everyone choose a less commercial movie to be their fave in order to make them look ‘deep’. Burn.

The movie is about a nameless character, XXXX who deals coke and other ‘recreational’ drugs with his small team. He works with Jimmy, a well respected boss. Jimmy was so impressed with XXXX he assigned him to find a crack whore daughter of his good friend, Eddie. Other than that Jimmy also ordered XXXX to deal with Duke, a pain in the ass wannabe gangsta, who happens to pull a heist on a ruthless Serbian ecstasy manufacturer. Things got really bad from there where deals went sour and lots of killing happens. The plot is abundant with twists and turns, it makes Michael Jackson looks straight.

Since it’s a Brit movie, I can’t really catch what some bollocks they said, but I think I got the gist. The movie was shot in England, which is really beautiful and clean and not raining. It feels modern too, since most of Brit movies I watched have the RTM feels to it. You know, dowdy and old.

Daniel Craig looks his best in the movie. He’s cool in every way. Sienna Miller is in the movie just for the eye candy in the predominantly male movie. Other characters are well developed where everyone has their own history.

If you like Fernando Meirelles’s City of God, The Godfathers, and other drug and gang related flicks, then this one’s for you. Highly recommended.

"You're born, you take shit. You get out in the world, you take more shit. You climb a little higher, you take less shit. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what shit even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake son. "
