  1. spasmolytic's rating of the film State of Grace

    Two of the greatest actors in the history of cinema, in a film that sucks.

  2. steeeeellaaaaa's rating of the film State of Grace

    gary oldman steals and saves this movie

  3. Stefano Pedrocchi's rating of the film State of Grace

    Why so Django Unchainedish at the end?

  4. smndvdcl's rating of the film State of Grace

    An acting masterclass from Penn, Oldman, Wright and Harris. A superb exposition of New York, appropriately atmospheric cinematography and an authentic re-enactment of sub-cultural diaspora. Joanou's best film in a year that was overshadowed by the auteuristic triumph of Scorsese's 'Goodfellas'. 3.5

  5. Addy K.'s rating of the film State of Grace

    Released around the same time as Scorsese's GOODFELLAS, this 1990 gem from Phil Joanou and regular collaborator d.p. Jordan Cronenweth was unjustly overlooked. Yes, Gary Oldman is well-known for playing "insane", but his character Jackie Flannery is pure: a product of instincts and loyalty to family and friends. Him and Sean Penn's Terry Noonan belong to a tribe. And when this tribe breaks, all hell breaks loose.

  6. Ryuu Baron's rating of the film State of Grace

    Oh boy what a movie, what an ending with balls.

  7. Mtume Gant's rating of the film State of Grace

    Another Film that really needs a half star. 3.5...some GREAT acting performances by Oldman, Robin Wright, Sean Penn and Ed Harris

  8. flobota's rating of the film State of Grace

    A great New York crime film featuring a great cast and a gripping story. Can't help but wonder weather infernal affairs was the only inspiration for The Departed for Scorsese.

  9. carolineoco's rating of the film State of Grace

    Gary Oldman's best role besides Dracula.

  10. Pedro's rating of the film State of Grace

    The movie is quite enjoyable and yeah, Oldman delivers. But what really kept me going was the soundtrack... Morricone's music is timeless.

  11. meancreek's rating of the film State of Grace

    I wasn't too fond of the first 30 minutes and I was expecting this to be an absolute chore to sit through. It only gets better from there, and the result is a quite brilliant crime drama. Penn is great in the lead role but oh my, Gary Oldman is mesmerizing.

  12. Se├▒oritaTeschmacher!!!'s rating of the film State of Grace

  13. Caden Cotard's rating of the film State of Grace

    A very well-done but overlong Irish gangster movie. Three brilliant central performances don't hurt, either.

  14. Paulitics's rating of the film State of Grace

    Great performance from Oldman.

  15. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film State of Grace

    Vastly underated crime flick with some great acting and an amazing final act
