Storyline

Jimmy and Jon are a couple of Brooklyn guys who somehow never found their way into workaday society; they never found their way into big-time crime, either. But that all changes when their old friend Frankie returns from Florida with some guns to sell. In the course of a few very short urban summer days, their lives spin permanently out of control.

As good and gritty as it gets.
6 August 2002 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

This is raw gutsy independent filmmaking at its very very best. You start to watch this film and you feel like you're about to partake in something legendary. You watch the actors - and you feel some spooky eerie kind of vibe because they are all so REAL. PETER GREEN! This guy is riveting. He's so damn good - I can almost understand why his career seems to have been doomed after " Clean Shaven." This was his debut and how could he ever be better? The photography in this film is compelling to watch! There isn't a minute you doubt and every minute you are in the middle. Why this movie is not available on DVD - or video - is a total mystery. Who distributes movies? I have a theory: distributors are angry little pretentious people who have finally crawled there way to a place of power. They can now - somehow - make huge decisions and take vengeance on a newfound platform, thus undoing countless years of failed attempts at being cool. Funny thing is, the jokes on US - because they are the ones who decide not only what we see - but where, when and how we see it!!! AMAZING. Truly amazing. This movie blows so many films out of the water. If I ever make a film - I'll know exactly what to do if I want it on DVD - make sure it's mediocre, slow and boring. And then spend some time kissing ass to get it sold.
