Grieving a Gangster. I'll Sleep When I'm Dead (2003)
My review analyses how masculinity is destroyed in Mike Hodges' 2003 crime drama, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead. The film which is strikingly similar to the director's first outing (Get Carter) is clearly different from mainstream gangster features. I would like to prove how the film depicts the so-called schizophrenic body or soul concept in contemporary crime movies and how does it differ from the gangster-image of the old days during which the spectator could watch independent, strong criminals (Little Caesar, The Public Enemy, Scarface or even The Godfather Part I.) who could control their fate.
