Most people like to think they have some degree of control over their lives. The truth is we're subject to the influence of others. Those who appreciate this can make a lot of money from those who don't. But any small-time grifter who ever dealt off the bottom of a deck can tell you that. What I can tell you about is the price one pays for peddling confidence. How every mark you fleece takes away a piece of your soul, and what happens when you try to pick up the pieces.

a dark comedic thriller with an indy twist..............
i have been a Nick Cage fan for a long time and love how he has so many personalities when it comes to getting in character. my roommate had this flick in his DVD collection and i watched it and it was pretty cool, not the best thing ever but i was surprised that i had never seen it since it was a film that Nicholas Cage appeared in. the film was directed by Christopher Coppola, Nick's relative, which i did not know previously, but that might explain why Nick Cage was let loose as far as being a wild card while doing his character Eddy, probably because he had more freedom to do what he wanted since this was not a mega-movie like a Jerry Bruckheimer movie etc.....
Michael Biehn is good in it as well, he acts similar to how he usually is in movies such as his most well known character in Terminator, but it works. James Coburn is in it and plays a good part for the type of actor he is, its cool that he can be in such eccentric little films such as this one even though he has done so much in film in his life already.
this film has a little mystery, a little dark eccentric humor, some thugs, and mostly set at nighttime, but Nicholas Cage's character is the most memorable one because he plays a high-strung, over the edge guy and he really gets into character, because his voice is different, he has a fake moustache, cheap haircut, sunglasses and weird eyes, it is such an eccentric character that he put out there which i love.
there is one particular moment i recall that was funny in an eccentric way, he was in a strip club and he was all strung-out and drinking or on drugs and he was messing with the stripper on stage and then on his way out he throws a drink on a random stranger and then proceeds to stand in the middle of the whole place with his arms raised and yells "F**K YOOOOUUUUUUUU !!!!!!! and then on his way out the door he snaps and does a karate-chop, kung-fu move on some guy for no reason at all and kicks the living crap out of him,hahaha,.................(btw, just from me being a little too observant, i noticed that in that scene when he yells the "F" word, i noticed there is a guy sitting at a table behind him with a black t-shirt with bold white letters saying the same thing, (F*** Y**), and i just thought it was weird that they did that.
its just an OK movie to watch if your a Nicholas Cage fan and like dark humor and indy type films or mysteries and thats that.
