"Fuckin' people talk about everything." An uplifting romp about the fragility of a neighborhood and the humors of family life. A real entertaining action packed plot with colorful characters and whitty writing... Fuck this movie for just existing. "Last call." Thanks Phil.
I really liked this. Everyone struggles along with incurred debts, somethings on the side, local gossip, and violence. If you live in a poor working class neighborhood, these things are reality, and although this easily could have been an outright black comedy, it did a great job depicting these realities.
No feel, no pace, even these terrific actors have troubling getting into a groove with one another. Regrettable misfire with bad photography and unsure tone shifting. Strives for "Friends of Eddie Coyle" and Lumet territory...gets nowhere near it.
