'R Xmas is a loose & rough crime film that depicts NYC right before the Giuliani era. While at first seeming to be a straight forward thriller, it reveals itself to be a political morality play on the corruption in society, the abuse of law enforcement, & the cyclical nature of criminal activity. Leave it to Ferrara to praise the work ethic of coke dealers who just want to provide for their families & communities.
