pitdogG's rating of the film Get Shorty

This film is the cock of the walk. John Travolta is the engine that drives this brilliant comedy adaptation of the Elmore Leonard book. It captures the rhythm of Leonard's prose precisely. An that's high praise. It has a visual style that arrests and it's pacing is amazing. Great performances abound in every role. Okay, so Denis Farina is a little over the top, but if you know any wise guys they can be as well.
