John Goodman is such a wonderful actor as he as proven time and time again with his frequent Coen collaborations. His "Bambino" is a childlike man of large appetites and forceful, abusive rage that he is helpless to control. The film that surrounds Goodman is mediocre and unable to give dramatic shape or form to a complex individual's life. Goodman digs deep, but the film is not worthy of his effort. Unfortunate.
