Quotes

Stella Snyder: They got ex-bulls guarding the front entrance. Guys bounced off the force for being so brutal even the other bulls noticed. You remember Duke Lindsay?
Eddie Doyle: Yeah... he got picked up last year, didn't he?
Stella Snyder: Yeah. Hitting the St. Alban's. Poor Duke. After what they did to his face with the sidewalk, it's kind of a good thing he got sent up the river. At least he's got decent medical care.

Great 'caper' film, surprisingly well done
6 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And I agree with Cameron McAllister in Atlanta - kudos to your review, sir. Thankfully-bereft of large-scale, multi-peopled-large-casts, loud noises, over-the-top music and up-scale 'city scenes', this quiet but interesting film depicts, on a mini-scale, some of the most cogent and intimate efforts by the US Guv what it took to capture the essence of the 'newer' Japanese code machine triggering WWII. It won't take a 5th of expensive Scotch (nod to the director for its inclusion, and how many of us knew, then, the Japanese also have a succor for this beverage?) to appreciate this little-known but seriously-considered effort. I was engrossed from the start. But you kind-of have to 'hang in there' for the Cracker Jack surprises.
