Did you sleep outside last night?
No, no, no. I did heroin with a bunch of prostitutes at the Plaza Hotel. I'm thinking of becoming a pimp.

I really wonder why is this movie so less known,i mean only 800 odd votes!thats bizarre,this is a brilliant movie.well directed and with some superb performances.especially from Andy Garcia.Im an Asian so it is understandable that most film goers are unaware of this movie as this brand of movies are less popular here and they do not get that much publicity,but what about other places?is it because perhaps it was poorly marketed?Because i strongly feel this movie deserves a much lager audience base.Characters are well portrayed and the story develops consistently towards an absolutely brilliant and worth anticipated climax.This is not what you can call a perfect example of a typical Hollywood brand of movie,it is different but it is refreshing,and is it certainly worth multiple viewing.
