Excellent mafia film with just the right amount of violence
While living in Pittsburgh when 10th and Wolf was being filmed, I eagerly awaited its release, but never heard anything about it. After recently renting it, I loved the film. I feel that it's equivocal to a modern day Goodfellas; so why haven't I heard anything about this movie? Why haven't more people seen it, I wonder? The acting is top-notch, with great cinematography as well. I think this has been James Marsden's best work to date, and his character is very well developed throughout the plot. It just seems like a shame that there are 40 copies of Failure to Launch, but only two copies of Tenth and Wolf at my local Blockbuster.
