Irene Tucker: Fabulous.
Hank McCain: Twelve years in prison, I still get a kick out of these lights.
Irene Tucker: They're beautiful.
Hank McCain: They're not beautiful. They're cheap. It's an attraction for sad, fat businessmen begging for more money. For hustlers, for thieves, for pimps. I love it.

Not the lizard king, but not too bad
5 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

The movie is pretty good to see in that Peter Falk, of Columbo fame, gives an unexpectedly good performance as a ruthless gangster. I saw the movie on A and E, so I probably missed some details. The gist is that Cassavettes tries to win one more score from Ganster Falk(sort of like Superfly)and attempts to do so with the help of his "Little Friend", a Thompson Automatic. For a film of the late sixties, it is pretty violent. However, Cassavettes created his own style of directing, and this film showcases it.

It was hard to follow at parts, but again this may have been due to the commercial interruptions and editing.

It's about a 7.5 out of 10.
