Villain (1971)

Michael Tuchner directs Richard Burton, Ian McShane and Nigel Davenport in this British gangster film where a vicious gang boss plans a heist.

Strange fish this. Burton’s performance certainly is memorable. Based on a Kray, he is both gay and a goblin… but his cockney accent is awful. The main heist has some surprises. In total though it never really coalesces. Good London location work.
