Really Good Flick
28 March 2005 | by (Mid-Atlantic) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent, absorbing, heartrending flick. I don't understand why LaPaglia never includes it in his filmography when doing print interviews. It was great and a great introduction for him to U.S. audiences.

"Nitti" covered Frank's rise and fall and tragic end in the Mafia organization of (if I remember correctly) the 1920's and '30's. What was especially interesting to me was how well the film showed the dichotomy of the gangster as ruthless "company" man and devoted, loving family man. Both aspects of Nitti were well drawn. LaPaglia, in what I believe was his American debut, still babyfaced and fresh, was especially chilling because of that freshfaced aspect. One didn't expect his Nitti character to act as a horrifying nasty man. On the other hand, the loving scenes with his wife and small child were sweet and touching and absolutely believable.

If you see this film in your dead-of-afternoon or late-night listings please make it a must see. As I said before, it is a really good flick.
