very influential movie
12 September 2009 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when I was 16. I was living with my parents in Brooklyn , NY. I didn't have to do much but to go to a local VHS video rental store and rent like 5-7 movies a day, in order to kill some time. I doubt that i could have been in the same state of mind as Madsen's character, but now after 17 years have passed, I still think that this is one most meaningful and deep movies I have ever seen, as as well as one of the Michael Madsen's best acts.

Everything, even the slightest detail in this movie is perfect, starting from color correction ending with costumes. Too bad it never came out on DVD. My regards to the producers and the director.
