Six years ago Joey's life changed totally. A shop owner who lay in a pool of blood claimed that Joey was the perpetrator. Now the time is served and Joey has scars on both his body and his soul. He is determined to never go back to prison. He seeks his elder brother Tommy who has begun dealing drugs and is now married to a beautiful blonde named Lorraine. She is at first sceptical about Joey staying there, but soon they develop a special relationship. Written by Fredrik Klasson <fredrik.klasson@boras.mail.telia.com>

User Reviews

Interesting. Enjoyable. But....
28 May 1999 | by PJKSee all my reviews

It was late at night, I was bored, and am a Tim Roth fan, so I decided to watch it. I didn't expect much. Maybe that's why I enjoyed it so. It was very interesting. It presented you with questions about these characters and gave pieces of the puzzle slowly. It kept you engrossed, wanting more. It had various different sub-plots, all entertaining. It had this build up of a true great film and a truly great drama and character study with a uniqueness to it. However towards the end it falls into the standard, predictable plot points, transforming from a character piece and drama, to the cliche crime drama Tim Roth is most known for. That is truly a shame since, when given the chance, Roth can give great comedic and dramatic performances only if given the chance. While Roth made this film what it is, it featured good performances by Russo and Unger, those two should be watched in the future, they could easily go places.
