I dare you to try taking your eyes off Vincent Donofrio from his first word until his phone rings. Dare ya. Double dare ya. That man can chew up a screen with his exquisitely-timed, pitch-perfect patience.
Seymour Cassel's performance was very moving, despite or perhaps because he never spoke a single word.
The story is by no means your average mobster tale, with twists and turns that both horrify and delight. This film is a quiet gem, one I'd never heard of and only ran across by happy accident; definitely worth the investment.
