This collection features the British gangster films, LAYER CAKE, SNATCH and LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS.
In LAYER CAKE, the story centres on a successful London-based cocaine dealer who plans an early retirement from the business. He is, however, handed an assignment, which involves 'layers' through which he must proceed in order to escape the modern underworld in which he is trapped. His final job threatens to bring him back into the 'cake mix'.
In SNATCH, Turkish and Tommy, unlicensed boxing promoters, become unwillingly involved with a criminal called Brick Top. When they are persuaded to stage rigged bare knuckle fights things don't go exactly to plan.
In LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS, streetwise charmer Eddy, the son of steely bar owner JD, botches a gambling scheme with his dad's nemesis, porn king Hatchet Harry. He's got one week to come up with [500,000 or he loses his fingers and so do his friends Tom, Bacon and Soap. In his debut feature film, director-writer Guy Ritchie weaves a tangled web of shady, blithely eccentric characters and several storylines, all of which come together in a gleeful explosion of murder and mayhem.
