44 Inch Chest

3

Not quite made to measure...

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.
