The Gentleman. Paragraph Review.

I’ve seen all of Guy Ritchie’s big studio efforts. That said this was my first exposure to the type of film that he made his name with. As an introduction it isn’t bad. Yes it’s a little self-indulgent and far too pleased with itself in terms of how labyrinthine it can make its plot but the performances and sense of humour (even if the dialogue is nowhere near as scabrous as something like in Bruges which I watched for the first time recently and absolutely loved) relatively engaging and amusing throughout. I had a solid time with it and it’s a good Friday night film choice once it hits streaming/ physical media but it’s also the kind of disposable film that I feel will have almost entirely exited my brain by this time next week.
