Excellent, dramatic movie!
19 October 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I totally disagree with the obnoxious reviews that are posted about this film -- Danny Aiello was exceptional! Having lived in one of these families (my father was a Closer), the story line and the actors were right on! Michael Pare` was cool, a study in perfection. Glad to see him in a straight dramatic role, instead of car chases and guns. He's the sexiest man around.
