Snatch takes place all over London, in the criminal underworld, and that is about all I can tangibly explain in a single blog post; that, and the fact that two plots, one concerning a stolen 86-carat diamond, and another about an underground boxing syndicate, come together at the end seamlessly. The story is thoroughly chaotic, but Guy Ritchie found a way to make it all tie together and make sense to the audience. It’s just, I’m not Mr. Ritchie, so you’ll have to check out the movie for yourself if you haven’t seen it already in all its hectic splendor.
The film gives us such excitement to sojourn Europe because it provides an ironically stylish view of London and some rough and tough residents of the city. And Brad Pitt’s Irish Gypsy rendition was priceless. I just got lost in the array of different British dialects and ended up wanting one of my own. – Let me take an aside and say how much more intelligent European English sounds than American English. The greatest American scholars either speak like poets or downright nerds, while a brilliant European English speaker doesn’t end up with much of a drastic alteration to their speech. That is all I have to say about that. – Anyway, speech was such an enthralling aspect of Snatch that it helped the writing and acting come together in such a way that it comes to no surprise that it has the cult following is does.
I watched Snatch with no knowledge of its history other than Guy Ritchie’s direction of Sherlock Holmes, which I liked. It made me happy to recognize the similarities in directing styles. Brad Pitt had to have been so well directed to properly portray the comic relief as his gypsy character. Snatch was written so well that the raw action and humor completes the package, making it a movie to excite the sojourner in all of us.
