Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film State of Grace

Goodfellas (released the same week as the superior State of Grace) is often thought of as rewriting the book of mob films. But, I think it's easier to seem quote-unquote transgressive when there's no real conflict or centralized story to speak of. My big problem with that film. State of Grace, however, rewrites the book by upending many melodramatic cliches into pure drama by traditional storytelling. That's harder.
