Wow, blew me away

O.K. here it is. First let me tell you I saw it last night on VOD. Amazing, once again, Wow. I was expecting a gambling movie through and through what I got was one of the most compelling story I've seen in years. It was about this gambler who just breezes through life, no problems, no worries. Plan and simple just put food on the table, roof over your head kind of life. Everyday's a new hustle. Well one day he finds out he has to take on the responsibility of his Down Syndrome adult child. Right there I was taken to the next level by the writer/director Robert Celestino. The job he did both with this incredible cast is second to none. As for Chazz Palminteri this has to be his best work since Bullets over Broadway. Tom Guiry amazed me as he transformed into the role. Christine Lahti and Michael Lerner add to the drama like frosting on a spectacular cake. I could go on and on about this gem of a movie, all I can truly say out of my heart is you have to see it for yourself. It's well worth it. TT

having seen YONKERS JOE at tribeca and also VOD i must alert the general movie going public and the rest of the world that this movie ,,YONKERS JOE is a must see film.
i,ve been a gambler for 45 yrs and have never seen or heard of those gambling moves that are in YONKERS JOE.infact i,ve probably been on the recieving end of them,,,,, incredible scenes ,photograthy was just great to capture those scenes.
the story was great and kept you glued to the screen.
the acting ,,just superb, chazz was his usual self ,,GREAT. the director had to go to great lenghs to get the inside scoop on those gambling moves ,,i know that they are a well kept secret amoung those mechanics ,hustlers ,cross roaders ,card and dice cheats , also the fact that the director had the balls to put them on the screen tells me that any gambler has to make this a must see. call it GAMBLING 101 , i applaud all those involved with the making of YONKERS JOE
