Hardboiled! kicks off this week at Trailers from Hell, with filmmaker Neil Marshall introducing “Get Carter.”
Directed by Mike Hodges and starring Michael Caine, the
shocking and stylish Get Carter is the crème de la crème of 70′s British
gangster movies. As the vengeful mobster Jack Carter, Caine retains the cool,
sardonic nature of his Harry Palmer character but with a distinctly ruthless
violent streak. Roy Budd’s jazz-infused funk score has developed as much of a
fan base as the movie itself.
