Ever since I saw "Sexy Beast," I knew that Ray Winstone was a great actor. And finally after BBC America(thanks TIVO/DVR)started showing "Vincent," this was confirmed. Ray never seems to get the chance in the supporting roles he does in American films, but I think that his performance on the show is award worthy. On one hand, you have this macho yet intelligent private eye. And on the other, you have a flawed, and extremely vulnerable man, who seems to live in the shadows of his past. Either learning from his mistakes and choices, or still suffering from them. With help from slick(but not overtly)cinematography, and up to date and real dialog, the show is allowed to sparkle. Catch it if you can, you'll thank me.
