Favourite Gangster Movies (preferably British)

What are they (inspired from the Essex Boys thread).

My favourite has got to be without a doubt Layer Cake.
 
Here are some others that I liked;
Rock n Rolla
Rise of the Footsoldier
Snatch
Lockstock 
Public Enemies (not British, but deserves a shout)
Harry Brown
 
Films I want to see;
The Krays
Bonded in Blood
Eastern Promises

    I've always had a soft spot for Gangster No 1
     
    Over the top with the swear's but great from start to finish.
     
    Other than that I've enjoyed...
     
    Krays
    Lock Stock
    Snatch
    Harry Brown
    Get Carter
    Long Good Friday (Classic of the highest order)
     
    That's all I can think of that are British...the best Gangster flicks are all American really.

    Gangster No 1 and The Business look really good. I'll add it to my list :D 
     
    I love the classy, suave British gangster types. That's why I loved Layer Cake and also Rock n Rolla. Top films.

    Hopefully they bring out some more classics soon. I think its a little overdue if im honest!

    I watched London Boulevard the other day, thought that was actually pretty good.

    Not necessarily Gansta. But the Bank Job with Jason Statham is a decent Brit one too.

    Dead Man Running might be worth a watch. I like all the films you mentioned and thought it was good.

    The Krays.
    Long Good Friday.
    Get Carter (original).
    Shiner (Caine again) great little Brit film.
    Mona Lisa - Mr Caine again with Bob Hoskins
     
    And not a gangster film but one of revenge very very realistic/graphic and gritty British film - Dead Man's Shoes - pretty distressing watching actually but totally absorbing.

    I love Dead Mans Shoes.
    Utterly brilliant movie & one everyone should see
    Paddy Considine is brilliant in it
     
    If you like that then I can definitely recommend Shane Meadows other films especially This is England
    I freaking love that film & the TV sequel This is England '86 is just as great.

    Although very different to the films mentioned, no east end type gangster, Bullet Boy is a pretty good film.

    Prefer Get Carter to any American gangster film... infact most films full stop. However Scarface, The Departed and Goodfellas give it a good run! 3 great films in any genre.
