We can all agree that no one does charming scumbags like Guy Ritchie, yes? While he certainly has other gifts as a filmmaker, the truth is that Ritchie is never better than when he’s throwing wave after wave of idiosyncratic and charismatic criminals at you.

His latest film (which he both directed and co-wrote) is “The Gentlemen,” a skewed and stylized look at what happens when a career criminal decides to divest himself of his illicit holdings, only to find himself forced to do his own particular brand of business with (and against) those who seek to profit from his departure at his own expense.

With an all-star cast led by Matthew McConaughey and wholly invested in Ritchie’s vision, “The Gentlemen” is a brutal and very funny film, off-kilter and convoluted in the most entertaining ways. It might not ascend to the level of the filmmaker's most beloved works, but it’s still a heck of a good time.
