This is a fantastic thriller from the early 90s with Willem Dafoe in the lead role. It has an incredible cast: Mickey Rourke (post 80s, but not yet all beaten to hell by life and boxing), Samuel Jackson, Elizabeth Mastrantonio, James Rebhorn, Beth Grant, Miguel Sandoval, Maura Tierney, & M. Emmet Walsh! This is clear cut noir drama, no shortcuts or cheap laughs, just solid actors having a blast with a solid script. ONE THING: It's currently available on Amazon Prime and for some unknown, ungodly reason they have muted out every single curse word! It really takes away from the film and it's super distracting. The dialogue will just disappear for three quarters of a second while you watch Dafoe and Rourke cuss their little hearts out. I guess I must admit, after a short while, I found myself in a killing myself by trying to figure out what cuss words they were meeting out. Most actors a pretty good diction and you can tell but that Defoe, he's a mumbler! I've never seen anything like this done to a film of quality before; even on regular, ancient, pre-cable TV let alone the self-proclaimed awesomeness of Amazon Pime!! It's revolting and will ruin the film for some. Still worth watching. 8 outta 10! Stars!!
