Still I liked the movie, but am still wondering why people are spelling it 'L4yer'.

They are the same people who spell the movie Seven, "Se7en".

I loved layer cake. Just something about the pacing, music, visual style. I can watch that movie over and over again.

Layer Cake is a good movie

Lock Stock and Snatch are a cut above it I'd say, and between Good and Great, and I personally prefer Lock Stock, but only by a little (I'm with the trend, I saw it first). Brad Pitt's pikey (and all the pikeys) are excellent and not caricatures, I'm telling ya! and I want both!

On a side-note, Mean Machine is much more marginal, though it does have it's moments (Jason Statham as a psycho goalie who sees things in his head that diverge from reality is quite funny). I'd say it's worth seeing if on TV or at a friends, but don't go out of your way.

If you like to try deeper, darker Brit stuff try Gangster No.1 (okay the modern day bits really don't cut it, but the 1960's bits are as good as anything you'll ever see), Sexy Beast, or if you wanna go back in time, 'The Long Good Friday' and the original 'Get Carter'.

Carter, I think I've mentioned before, is Michael Caine being the screen's ultimate badass - I kid you not.

Thanks for the pic. The DVD copy I own is spelt LAYER CAKE, as well as the IMDB and official site (as GOT pointed out).

I guess they made a couple different versions.

Don't NOT see it because you're concerned about the limited role that Sienna Miller plays. You should know in advance that her very brief appearance is well worth it. As in, she gets all made up in lingerie and looks [censored] hot.

Thanks, now I want to see it again.

Two minutes is about all I'd need with Sienna Miller, so that's fine with me.

There wasn't anything more interesting about her than her looks in this movie. If she's got something else to show, she didn't show it. Not that it's necessarily her fault; it wasn't that kind of role.

Tossing some broad into every movie as a love interest, no matter how badly it fits, is pretty mandatory unfortunately. It wasn't as disruptive in Layer Cake as it usually is elsewhere, because they didn't use her much in a story that didn't need her, so in a way we should be grateful she wasn't used in a way that would have been much more damaging to the movie.
