Crime • NC-17 • 1992 • 1 hr 36 min
Worth watching. Ain't going to change your life but entertaining enough
Crazy big performance and a wild story to match it. Fun, scary, unpredictable and disturbing
The story of a bad cop, with power that corrupts him. A gritty drama showing how great men are almost always bad men.
Such an intense performance. This movie is raw and unforgiving.
I'm sorry Harvey Keitel is fucking sexy.
Dark character study with a completely committed central performance from Harvey Keitel.
The film is convincing portrait of depravity resulting from cop burnout/corruption. But it's so visceral there's not much to think about.
There's something utterly engaging with Abel Ferera's nihilistic world-view in his films. Keitel is magnificent & the film darkly brilliant.
Keitel's notable performance carries this crude and surreal exploration of morality and catholic guilt.
Genious Harvey Keitel gives a performance of his life. Rough and visceral movie experience
