Charlie Mantle is a wonder--a great modern film noir, in the tradition of Fritz Lang and Elia Kazan--shot on a low budget, it succeeds in capturing the gritty quality of modern NYC. Robert Funaro is great as Charlie, he's a new emerging star--a DeNiro like actor--he'll do great--great Cameos by Armand Assante, Paul Vario, and Sean Young from DUNE--great little film!!
Fred Carpenter's direction captures the essence of the dark side of the NYPD, and he manages to do a out for a little. Fred has been directing films for 20 years, in his back-lot of Long Island, and he deserves some recognition--He's done Murdered Innocence,Small Kill and has several unreleased films including "Shmucks", a brilliant comedy, and The Blue Lizard--Fred should get some respect--he's launched the career of two major directors, and deserves to be called the Martin Scorcese of Long Island!
