44 Inch Chest

2

Lots of big talk, not so much muscle

Big pecs, bigger balls, the writers of Sexy Beast again eyeballing machismo through feet-planted posturing and poetically profane dialogue.

Here, male love is obsession/possession, Ray Winstone’s fuming cuckold spitting monologues at a French lover boy while Ian McShane and John Hurt urge him on.

Self-consciously theatrical, 44 Inch Chest struts its stuff in a single room, but loses its iron grip in the final third.

Wimpy extras.
