Too much going on
1 May 2019 | by drjgardnerSee all my reviews

This film is too ambitious for its own good. There are so many story lines and the film moves in-and-out of them with no apparent rationale. Less would be more. The acting is uniformly good and the film manages to have a "mean streets" feel to it. Any two or three of the story lines (criminal faced with choice, betrayal of friend, family discord, girl tries to make it, family fights mob influences, getting ahead in the mob) would have made this a good film, but all of them is just too much.
