I really enjoyed this film. As far as crime dramas go it is up there
with The Godfather to me. Laurence Fishburne was great in his role as
Bumpy Johnson. Tim Roth gave a great performance also.
The film did a great job portraying the inner turmoil of people. Also it did a great job at showing the racist attitudes of the times. Example: Dutch asking his main guy, who is black to wrap up his (shultz) sandwich scraps so that he (the black guy) could take them home to feed his grandkids. Classic subtle racism.
The clothes and the music were also good for the period. One scene was even shot at the cotton club which no movie during this period is complete without.
Great Job! Great Film!
