Gritty, low budget mobster cinema verity.
20 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Hard hitting, gritty but low budget mob drama of disgraced mobster trying to go straight but not allowed to by his "family" unit. Most notable is the appearance of rock royalty, Leslie West and his drummer, Corky Laing as main antagonists/hit men. This movie was shot in the early seventies so everyone has their hard-rock haircuts, but this was an accurate depiction of the hoods of the day wanting to look "hip". This should be marked as Leslie West's first film appearance, years ahead of "The Money Pit" with Tom Hanks. It has been years since I had viewed this film, but what sticks out is the "High Noon" showdown looming in the climatic scene, the protagonist saws off the barrel of a shotgun in preparation. I had never seen such documentary style realism in a commercial film before, but this was before I had watched "Mean Streets" or other early Scorcese or Coppola projects. I'd love to see this movie again.
