A great film with superb acting based on the true life events of Jimmy Hoffa. I especially liked the beginning of the film when the Idle Hour Laundromat was fire bombed by Jimmy, Bill, and DeVito. This stark symbolism sets the tone for the movie as the building goes up in an explosion and fireballs. Billy is severely burned and eventually dies of his injuries. While on his death bed, Billy tells the Priest nothing, but DeVito always tells the story that Billy said something nasty to the Priest, but I could not hear what was said, but it is evident that Billy is no rat, so to speak. So we have the Idle Hour going up in flames, Billy saying nothing on his death bed, and Hoffa paving the way for the formation of the Teamsters. The rest of the movie is about the formation of the Teamsters with strikes, Scabs, and busting heads to see this thing through, to fight for the common man. It's all about the money, as a pension is formed to the tune of 200 million, and then the mob moves in to borrow from the pension. Hoffa and the mob are bedfellows, with Robert "Bobby" Kennedy, as Attorney General trying to tie Hoffa to the mob, racketeering, and theft. It's an excellent movie, set in a time of radical change, with the assassination of John F. Kennedy, mob connections, lots of money, and the eventual hit that takes out Hoffa. His body has never been found to this day. I highly recommend this movie, and if you want to learn more about the true events, buy the book, "I Heard You Paint Houses." On a historical note, Jimmy Hoffa never smoked or drank, and did not like people around him who did smoke.
