Foreign Film Month Continues with Brendan Gleeson in The General

Foreign Film Month continues with Brendan Gleeson in The General

Brendan Gleeson (Mad-Eye Moody from Harry Potter) stars in this true story of Martin Cahill, an Irish Gangster who is a brilliant master thief. Cahill finds himself on the wrong side of the IRA as well as the Irish Authorities.

One of my favorite parts of this movie is where Cahill is under house arrest and is being watched by Irish Authorities and the IRA, yet he still manages to pull off the theft of master paintings.

For a Gangster / Master Thief, Cahill had a fantastic sense of humor and Gleeson does a fantastic job of showing his humorous side as well as his skills as a Thief / Gangster.

John Voight play Irish Inspector Ned Kenny who is on to Cahill, but just can’t quite pin him down.
