Critics reviews

Toback’s bravado-braggadocio and Levinson’s languorous slickness seem to have found their ideal subject in Bugsy Siegel, a flamboyant borderline psycho who epitomized the commingling of Hollywood and gangsters during the 1940s; together director and writer have provided Warren Beatty with his juiciest part in years, and he takes full advantage of it.
