Can we all agree that Gary Oldman is badass and remarkable actor. I mean he has been on an amazing kick these past several years with memorable roles and even going further back into his filmography with the over the top villains and heroes that make this man a joy to watch on screen. While I should be talking about film that he has a prominent role in for today’s post and early praising I did, I want to concentrate on something that few people have probably seen or even heard of. Back in 1997, Gary Oldman wrote and directed a film that ended up on Britain’s Top 100 British Films of all time. It has won numerous awards and BAFTA’s galore, but it was the only film that he has directed or written, never coming back behind the camera.
