Storyline

Jackie Rhoades is a 34 year-old small-time hood who lives in a cheap $4 a night hotel room. He's waiting to hear about his next job but when George shows up telling him that his next job is murder - of a bar owner who doesn't want to pay off his gangster bosses- Jackie begins to have a conversation with his alter ego who appears to him in a mirror. The alter-ego takes him to task for the choices he made in his life - choices that led to crime, prison and broken relationships. He also offers Jacjie an alternative. Written by garykmcd

A man finally coming to age at a late junction in his life
6 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not so much of a review as it is an observation. Has anyone notice the line, "Are you talking to me?" "Are you talking to me?" which is utilized in this story by a man speaking into a mirror is almost the same line which Robert De Niro utilizes (and has become a catch-phrase) years later in the movie "Taxi." This is awfully coincidental.

Regardless of the aforementioned catch-phrase, the acting is superb and the innovation of the production filming is unique for the time. Notice how employment of split-screens is not used for the production. Richard Haydn pulls off the duo road superbly. And of course, this is a Rod Serling script.
