What do you think, Irving? Makes this cheap dago move on me, Bo Weinberg. The man who took out @Vincent Coll. The man who held Jack Diamond's ears so he could put the gun in his mouth. Who found the rackets he was to *stupid* to find for himself, who made him something more than the lowdown fucking guy that he is! The schmuck, I should expect something else. He pulls me off the the street right in front of my girl, like he don't know no better. Schmuck!

This film went somewhat Quietly into the shelf for most. If you haven't seen it, your missing a good watch! Chalked full of some of the most famous names in the film industry, it's a very subtle comparison to Scar Face. However there is Much less glamorization of the under world, and certainly a closer reality of life, luck and love. Dustin Hoffman (Dutch Schultz) at his finest, and Bruce Willis (Bo Weinberg) with his classic suave, coolness. Nicole Kidman (Drew Preston), Stanley Tucci (Lucky Luciano) and John Costello (Lulu) also deserve a thumbs up here. But your attention will certainly remain with a supreme performance by Loren Dean ( Billy Bathgate). I am still wondering why we haven't seen much more of this kid? Turn off the phone, Dim the lights, grab all you favorite snacks, get comfy and ready to leave your world behind for a while. You'll want to see this one without any interruptions.
