A Very British Gangster

Directed by Donal MacIntyre, this intriguing documentary is about one of Britain's most dangerous crime families and introduces us to its magnetic, larger-than-life leader, Dominic Noonan (aka Lattlay Fottfoy). Rarely does a film gain such deep access, showing us a close-up view of a world embroiled in kidnapping, torture, narcotics and murder. But behind the macho bravado, a poignant world is revealed where a community struggles with poverty, violence and drugs. The film premiered in World Documentary Competition at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. The film was released by Road Film in August 2008 and has officially been submitted to the Academy for Best Documentary. dominion3 is currently working on the Awards campaign.
