"There's Too Much Violence On TV" Says On-Screen Hardman Ray Winstone

Tags: Ray Winstone - Aneurin Barnard

Ray Winstone has carved out a career by being a tough guy on screen, starring in such violent capers as Scum, Love, Honor and Obey and more recently in the big screen adaption of The Sweeney. Despite enjoying a successful career as a movie geezer, Ray thinks that there is way too much violence on TV today.

Winstone will next appear in the Sky One adaption of the popular children's novel Moonfleet, in which he plays Elzevir Block, the leader of a band of smugglers trying to find a lost diamond. Having appeared in Hugo and seemingly moving away from the more violent roles he has become synonymous with over the years, Winstone has decided to speak out against the increasing amount of violence seen on screens and spoken of his delight of being involved in a project with actual substance, rather than just lots of guns and swearing.

The White Queen

Trap for Cinderella Review

Stylish and moody, this twisty dramatic thriller gets under our skin with its mysterious tone and darkly insinuating performances. But the script is badly underwritten, never quite connecting the dots between what happens on screen. Several of the events are frankly unbelievable, which is made more frustrating by characters who continually do things that don't make logical sense. So we end up struggling to see the point of it all.

Everything happens in the wake of a massive explosion at a holiday house in the south of France. Micky (Middleton) wakes up with amnesia, having had her face rebuilt by surgeons. But her childhood best pal Domenica (Roach in flashbacks) died in the fire, leaving a huge hole in her life. Her guardian (Kerry Fox) tries to help her return to her daily routine, but she's obsessed with piecing together the nagging puzzle about what happened. And she doesn't really want to be the person she apparently was before the accident. Her old boyfriend Jake (Bernard) is some help, but the more she learns about her former life, the more she wonders who she really is.

The insinuation from the very start is that Micky and Do may have swapped identities in the accident, which seems rather ridiculous since they aren't the same height. Reconstructive surgery can't overcome that, and their different coloured hair would become obvious pretty quickly. So every time writer-director Softley tries to drop a hint or throw us off the trail, we feel like we're being had. At least he maintains a terrific sense of film noir creepiness, with lush visuals and scenes that draw us in to make us wonder what will happen next. And there is the tantalising possibility that the swap is psychological.
