this was one cool movie
27 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This may not be accurate to the legend of Coll, but the movie was a killer (pun intended) b+movie. Riveting drama that plays on Coll's psychotic killer mentality, his twisted childhood and resulting bitterness. One correction: In the final scene Coll gets gunned down inside an indoor phone booth in a drug store, falls to the ground and crawls out to the street and dies, uttering the words, "I Hate" as he dies. Chandler, with his sneering, psycho-Elvis persona, plays this role superbly. This is a fun movie if you like the gangster-genre flicks - I think it has the potential to be a sleeper-cult film someday. I remember 30 years back when my parents and others alive during it's original release could not recall Jimmy Stewart's "It's a Wonderful Life," despite being big Stewart fans. When I first saw the flick in the early 70s I fell in love with it - and my elders looked at me like I was hallucinating. Now it's one of the most famous movies ever. How many dozens more great flicks have been forgotten & overlooked?
