Sexy Beast (Jonathan Glazer, UK, 2000)

As the mobster Don Logan in Sexy Beast, Ben Kingsley is so intensely frightening that it’s as if the actor were on a personal mission to deep-six Gandhi and his loincloth once and for all.
— Peter Rainer, New York Magazine

Ben Kingsley plays brilliantly against type as the gangster who persuades Ray Winston out of his sunny Costa Del Crime retirement.

One of the best British films of the 2000s and an audacious feature film debut from Glazer (Under the Skin).
