Killer Fish Dinner with Frank Pesce and William Lustig (2014)
*** 1/2 (out of 4)
This highly entertaining featurette can be found on the KILLER FISH Blu-ray release. Actor Frank Pesce and his friend director William Lustig are sitting down to some spaghetti and talking about Pesce career in Hollywood. This here is basically just a discussion between two friends but there are some terrific stories told that make this a must see. The two are connected via Joe Spinell so we get some good stories about him as well as how Pesce helped give Lustig the original idea for MANIAC. There are some truly wonderful stories here including three films that Pesce was fired from including TAXI DRIVER and THE FIRST DEADLY SIN. The stories about DeNiro and Sinatra are just priceless. Towards the end of the documentary is when we finally get to how he got the job on KILLER FISH and what it was like shooting it in Brazil. This really is a terrific little documentary that gives Pesce a chance to talk about his career and Lustig was certainly the perfect person to ask questions and to keep everything moving.
