Private eye Eddie Ginley (Albert Finney) thinks he’s Bogart – if Bogie was a compere at a Merseyside bingo – but his latest case may have bamboozled even Raymond Chandler himself. Accompanied by a mesmerising Andrew Lloyd Webber score, Frears’ post-modern dismantling of the American detective genre revels in British locations and wonderfully earthy wordplay. You’ll never look at a raincoat in the same way again. Here’s looking at you … Eddie?
