Bộ Phim 44 Inch Chest
Colin Diamond (Winstone) is a successful car salesman, who after discovering his wife Liz is having an affair has an emotional breakdown. His friends convince him to kidnap his wife’s lover and then encourage him to torture and kill him.
Diamond’s partners in crime are suave homosexual gambler Meredith (McShane), crotchety and bigoted Old Man Peanut (Hurt), the down to earth Archie (Wilkinson) and the combustible Mal (Dillane), who by turns encourage Colin’s lust for revenge and sympathise with his situation, and conspire to emotionally and mentally torture Liz’s new man, Loverboy, a “Frog” waiter, first by locking him in a cupboard and threatening him, and then tying him up and subjecting him to humiliating verbal and physical assault.
Parts of the story occur in flashback, with Colin discovering Liz’s infidelity and the after effects of it, which then affect the present, in which he tries to come to terms with the shame and torment that this brings to him. Parts of the story also appear to happen inside Colin’s mind, with him trying to reconcile with himself, using his friends as representations of his own turmoil, and his resolving of the situation.
