Love Indie crime films
6 May 2020 | by idadaspida3See all my reviews

Danny Abeckaser was really good in this indie crime film. I love the rivalry of the Jewish and the Russians. I was rooting for Mikki. He was my bad good guy. He always meant well but it never turned out like he wanted. I love Harvey Keitel as well. I knew he would be one of the bosses. Shocked at the low score.
