Crime

Crime has certainly proven a rich dramatic vein for film. The conflict that arises from breaking the law is perhaps the perfect basis for a cinematic journey and from favourite super sleuths like Sherlock to sinister and seedy film noirs, there's much lawless entertainment to be had in our Crime section.
