Snatch (2000), directed by Guy Ritchie

Guy Ritchie's Snatch, a British comedy (at least some of the audience was  laughing), puts its disregard for human life right up front. We watch a jewel heist and massacre, some brutal beatings and a guy getting his face smashed with a hammer--all during the credits.
