Deadfall

Deadfall ★★★½

Once caught the set piece of this on late night TV. A diamond heist that’s set around a John Barry orchestra performance, that’s right he’s in it. It’s still an astonishing 15mins of music and film editing!

I tracked down the soundtrack and left the film as a difficult thing to get hold of. This turned up on BluRay last year. I wasn’t actually expecting much of this. Really surprised by its feel and pace… this cynical British heist film. Extremely dark third act for a major 20th Fox film. It does feel like it’s missing another heist somewhere. Great performances from it’s three characters.
