The story begins when a family man, Mickey Ryan, falls from grace through no fault of his own due to a series of downward spiraling events beyond his control. With his life turned upside down, Mickey tries valiantly to resolve his issues but hooks up with the wrong people who blind him with anger and hate. Then his life takes an even worse turn as evil infiltrates his life and he becomes involved in a series of hate crimes that seemingly give him no way out. Just when everyone is about to give up on him and he is poised to fall off the edge of life, one person finally steps up in a moment of redemption and forgiveness and saves him from the ledge of desperation.
So I got up, showered, got dressed, and went to this movie - but I made the mistake of not bringing an extra pair of trousers. It's so mind-blazingly awesome I literally pooped my pants! Filmed on a shoestring fry of a budget in Canada's New York City (Hamilton), and possibly without a script, this film kicks you in the balls with a cast that Jesus Christ himself couldn't assemble. Margot Kidder playing Bingo? Check. Bob Loggia and Tony Ambrogio? Double Check. Daniel Baldwin going balls-out? Check yourself a'fore you wreck yourself! And keep an ear out for Barack Obama doing the intro speech. I only give it an 8 because I was hoping all the characters in the D'Angelo Universe would meet each other at some point, like Lo Giacammo meeting up with Eddie Rizzo, for example, maybe sharing some butter cookies. I also don't know why Mancuso and Savage weren't involved. It's also unclear whether No Deposit, Real Gangsters, and Big Funkin' Stone form some kind of trilogy. I think they're all linked. Anyways, grab yourself some ginkgo balboa and royal jelly, cook up some rapine and let this movie skull-f-ck you with its awesomeness!
