Mona Lisa (UK, 1986)

Brilliant film noir directed by Neil Jordan. Possibly the best movie on Thatcher’s Britain (though it only deals with her devastation of Britain tangentially) and a thoroughly good thriller. Hoskins at his best as a cockney Everyman and Robbie Coltrane excels as his philosophical mate. Michael Caine’s brilliant too. Chilling movie. (DVD, 4). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091538/
