I have not seen in probably 13 yrs. Saw it in 94 first day it came out in theatres. Loved every minute. Not sure if it would have same effect on me. Early to mid 90s I watched everything of Oldman. This one had great atmosphere, dialogue, and acting. Seemed true if not prophetic of desperate man keepin too many fires lit for the hope of escape via money. The streets will be filled with animals...you keep breathing
An edgy, sexy, weirdly touching (occasionally), atmospheric and vibrant piece of metafiction, with my favorite performance of Gary Oldman's to date. The man is truly brilliant; he establishes such a particular, effective chemistry with every actor and actress he works with, and he manages a larger-than-life charisma while being completely believable every minute he's onscreen.
