Good character study
12 December 1999 | by tignorSee all my reviews

I was nicely surprised by Skag, having purchaced it off eBay because of my love of Peter Gallagher (blush) but it really is a nice, moving story about a man and his family. Karl Malden is fabulous as Skag, very moving and the best acting I've seen him in. Peter, while good, was pretty much absent most of the time.
