BELLMAN & TRUE
(Richard Loncraine, 1987)
Release date: 27 May 2019
Limited Blu-ray Edition (World Blu-ray premiere)


Adapted by Desmond Lowden from his novel of the same name, Bellman & True is a tense heist thriller starring Bernard Hill (Boys from the Blackstuff, The Lord of the Rings) as a computer programmer blackmailed by gangsters into hacking a bank security system.

Directed by Richard Loncraine (Full Circle, The Missionary) Bellman & True deftly balances dramatic realism with stark black comedy and nail-biting suspense. Produced by HandMade Films, Bellman & True is a fine companion piece to their successful thrillers The Long Good Friday and Mona Lisa.

I recall this as a good, nasty little thriller, with a fine, rare leading role for the great Bernard Hill. It’s based around a long, detailed caper sequence a la Rififi (but more brutal).
