*SPOILER ALEART for those who has not seen Gangster No.1”
|"Ganster smoking a cigarette and cursing at the victims lifeless body"|
One day my uncle came over and had a film in his hand but I wasn’t allowed to watch it and was sent to bed. He left the next day but without the film. Being alone and nothing to do I thought I should watch this film which was Gangster No.1. I’ve already seen Goodfellas, The Godfather Trilogy, Casino and Scarface but these films never somewhat made a bigger impact on me then Gangster No.1 did, mostly because of the beautiful brutal murder scene of Lenny Taylor. I’ve never seen in any film someone in his underwear with the Hi - Fi turned up so no one hears the screams torture someone in such a state with; ice pick, axes, machete even house hold items like wine bottles and fruit bowls. I was just blown away with this psychotic gangster kicking and shouting verbal abuse and finally killing Lenny ramming his face through a pane glass drink cabinet. I had to pause the film and take in what I just saw. The entire scene was shot in a point of view shot so all you see is what Lenny saw through his own eyes as images and sound slowly fades away and Lenny dies. You then see the a befuddled blood stained underwear smoking cigarette gangster sitting down still cursing at the victims lifeless body.
