“ My favourite film is the story of Jake Green (Jason Statham) a confidence trickster out to get revenge on the man who caused him to go to jail; Dorothy Macha (Ray Liotta).

This film is incredibly clever and has to be watched a few times to be fully understood, the cinematography is breathtaking and the narrative fascinating. Truly the greatest film of all time. ” - only-henri
