You never know who will come out of the woodwork when a gigantic diamond’s at stake.
It all starts with Franky “Four Fingers,” a gambler who manages to swipe an 84-carat diamond that’s worth a fortune on the black market. The theft sends shockwaves through the British underground, as everyone from shady boxing promoters to ex-KGB arms dealers get sucked into a knot of botched jobs and dead bodies. Loaded with comic toughs (Jason Statham, Vinny Jones), salty wise guys (Dennis Farina, Alan Ford) and good old fashioned weirdos (Benicio Del Toro, Brad Pitt), Guy Ritchie’s SNATCH. plays out like a an illegal game of Mouse Trap.
Part of Nitehawk’s January THE PERFECT CRIME brunch series.
