Will you shut the f*ck up with the farming!, 17 February 2010
Author: lastliberal from United States

It's Ash Wednesday. You know that because everyone is running around with an ash cross on their foreheads.

The movie takes place on that single day in hell's Kitchen. Writer, actor, and director Edward Burns plays Francis, a reformed gangster, who spends most of the first part of the movie chasing down a rumor that his brother Sean (Elijah Wood) is still alive.

I thought I was watching Scarface. The language was just as bad. It was hard to find any line that could be repeated.

Fairly good story with great performances including the above and Rosario Dawson, as well as Oliver Platt.
