  1. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Fingers

    Odd that I thought the sexual stuff was misplaced: it feels played for comedy, but is rather odd. Upon reading up, this flippant nature is even more problematic considering Director/Writer James Toback has apparently sexually assaulted 310 women. Yet, the film is grandly acted by Keitel, with good characterization and strong emotional conflicts. Too bad Toback's problems tainted Fingers, then his career.

  2. mt.fuji's rating of the film Fingers

    Toback is a better writer than he is director. The Gambler, another Toback script directed by Karel Reisz, fares far better.

  3. Chase Vault's rating of the film Fingers

    Women are being treated terribly in this movie. They're being hit, stalked, pushed into having sex without protection and other things. It was hard to stomach. Yeah I get the vibe of this movie but I'm still not sure if it was necessary to this extent. The fact that the director is accused of sexual assault by more than 300 women makes the feeling even worse.

  7. mubianer's rating of the film Fingers

    Who doesn't love gritty 70's New York? Keitel is intense and the soundtrack excellent.

  8. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Fingers

    A movie that did have a huge reputation at the end of the 70's. James Toback was meant to become a new Scorsese then. He had the brain and knew how to create an atmosphere. Nearly 40 years later, his name rings a bell only among a handful of movie lovers. So take the time to see 'Fingers', the sad story of Jimmy, a 32 year-old aspiring concert pianist, who's a debt collector in his spare time. Highly recommended.

  9. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Fingers

    An impressive and very pungent psychosexual gansgter drama, Toback's audacious conception of setting the story on a subjective Eros-Thanatos realm rather than a genuine 70's suburban New York is what alienates many people from it, as they keep finding the milieu clashing violently against their self-imposed assumption that all american movies of this type have to be realistic. Keitel's pianist tics are equally unreal

  10. Shayan Bazri's rating of the film Fingers

    Keitel is great.Toback is unbelievabe for his first one. This sure is on some levels and points more great than Taxi Driver.What a great end.

  11. Genre films > French New Wave's rating of the film Fingers

    With its amateur production quality, a phoned in performance from Harvey Keitel, weak storyline and a complete lack of energy, Fingers is a pretty awful movie.

  12. Eugene Kotlyarenko's rating of the film Fingers

    style for miles, not all of good and fairly incoherent/inconsistent//but still something special

  13. El Biffo's rating of the film Fingers

    I haven't seen this since it came out, so I can't exactly remember if it deserves 4 stars or 5 but I know it was good.

  14. Steve Michael Trager's rating of the film Fingers

    To paraphrase and apply what Robin Wood said about Marnie - if you prefer The Beat That My Heart Skipped to Fingers, you just plain don't like cinema. A testament to how miracles ultimately become pitfalls, Toback formed such a perfect ivory tower here to indulge all of his obsessions that he rendered himself only capable of creating films thereafter to suffer a steep decline into being uneven and uninteresting.

  15. Florence's rating of the film Fingers

    70s feeling pur, but I prefere the "Remake" from Audiard.

  16. Samuel B. Prime's rating of the film Fingers

    Ultimately uneven, but packs an unforgettable wallop in its last fifteen minutes.

  17. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Fingers

    A dour character study featuring what may very well be Harvey Keitel's best performance. Writer-director James Toback has had a spotty directing career over the years and has yet to fulfill the promise he displays here.

  18. Joks's rating of the film Fingers

    I prefer Jimmy Fingers to Travis Bickle. so there! ;_)
