BFI Black London - The Long Good Friday - Netflix

The Long Good Friday is a British gangster film starring Bob Hoskins and Helen Mirren. It was completed in 1979, but because of release delays, it is generally credited as a 1980 film. The storyline weaves together events and concerns of the late 1970s, including low-level political and police corruption, IRA fundraising, displacement of traditional British industry by property development, UK membership of the EEC, and the free-market economy. It was voted at number 21 in the British Film Institute's list of the “BFI Top 100 British films” list, and provided Bob Hoskins with his breakthrough film role. In 2016 British film magazine Empire ranked The Long Good Friday number 19 in their list of “The 100 best British films”.
