Awful

Abel Ferrara is no Martin Scorsese, let that be known first. The long drawn out scenes a la Goodfellas serve no purpose leaving me to honestly describe this film as one of the worst gangster movies I have ever seen.

A good movie

Back in the 90's, I was a huge fan of Abel Ferrara's work and, back then, I spent a lot of time tracking down his movies. Indeed, Ferrara has never been an easy director but I always found his movies really mesmerizing. However, all the movies he directed during the last 10-15 years were more alienating than fascinating to watch which is just too bad. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, it wa... read more

“Back in the 90's, I was a huge fan of Abel Ferrara's work and, back then, I spent a lot of time tracking down his movies. Indeed, Ferrara has never been an easy director but I always found his movies really mesmerizing. However, all the movies he directed during the last 10-15 years were more alienating than fascinating to watch which is just too bad. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, it was with this movie that Ferrara finally managed to reach a wider audience. To be honest, it is not really a ground-breaking gangster feature but there was still plenty to enjoy here. Indeed, what I enjoyed the most was probably the really dark and gloomy mood, definitely a trademark in Ferrara's work. Furthermore, it is always neat when Christopher Walken finally gets the opportunity to play the le” read more

Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2012 (460 movies items)

"14.7 Tunnelmaltansa sopivan rujo, mikä sopii tälläiseen rikospätkään tosi hyvin. Henkilöitä ei kuitenkaan pohjusteta tarpeeksi ja jopa Christopher Walkenin esittämä päähenkilö jää aika yhdentekeväksi, ei sillä että mies huonoa työtä tekisi. Harmittaa, sillä potentiaalia olisi ollut vaikka mihin."
