In this movie we follow two very different brothers raised by an alcoholic street walking mother ... One brother manages to overcome the adversity of his upbringing always striving for a long term goal, while the older brother takes a more hedonistic look at life and doesn't really plan further than tomorrows thrill .....
This certainly is one of the hands down best depictions of how drugs really ruin your life and your loves ... it certainly must be noted that this 1977 is NOWHERE close to the violent drug movies of today where we are treated to super close up shots of users inserting heroin needles ....

the cast is great and so is the storyline.Cathy Moriarity does an excellent job,John Leguizamo is great,Marisa Tomei is masterful, and Rosie Perez is simply the best. The story of two brothers going seperate ways in life into a dramatic conclusion that is simply an original heatfelt film.

WHEN I FIRST STARTED WATCHING THE MOVIE, I THOUGHT IT WAS GONNA BE A JOKE WITH WHITE PEOPLE TRYING TO ACT GHETTO OR WHATEVER, AND I WAS GONNA GET MY LAUGHS. I IMMEDIATELY SAW THE MOVIE WAS SERIOUS FROM THE ATMOSPHERE OF WHEN MICK AND LEX WERE LITTLE, AND THAT THE MOVIE WAS NO JOKE. WHEN I WAS DONE WATCHING THE MOVIE, I WAS SHOCKED AT HOW GOOD IT ACTUALLY WAS. IM NOT GONNA GIVE SPECIFIC DETAILS OF THE MOVIE. THE STORY WHEN LOOKED AT FROM A DISTANCE IS KINDA GENERIC, WITH ONE BROTHER BECOMING A STREET WALKER, AND THE OTHER A COP, BUT THE WAY IN WHICH IT HAPPENS IS ALMOST LIKE NO OTHER, WITH MINOR COMPLEXITIES ASSOCIATED WITH EACH CHARACTER'S PERSONALITY TO MAKE IT UNIQUE. I WAS ALSO IMPRESSED WITH HOW THEY WERE ABLE TO EXPLORE THE URBAN GENRE WITH RELATIVELY MINIMAL VIOLENCE, AND SENSELESS DIALOGUE THAT STEREOTYPES THE GHETTO. THEIR A FEW WEAKNESSES TO THE MOVIE THOUGH, STARTING WITH NICK CHINLUND(ADULT LEX) NOT BEING ABLE TO PROPERLY SPEAK SOME OF THE HEAVY SLANG HE USES AND MAKE IT FEEEL AUTHENTIC (HIS PERFORMANCE BEYOND THAT IS VERY STRONG, BUT THIS STICKS OUT TO ME SINCE IM FROM FLATBUSH, EFB, AND CROWN HEIGHTS BROOKLYN). ANOTHER WEAKNESS IS THE PREDICTABILTY OF THE STORY, BUT IT IS AN EMOTIONAL DRAMA, NOT A SUSPENSE THRILLER, SO IT DIDNT HURT THE FILM TOO MUCH. THE FINAL WEAKNESS I COULD THINK OF SOME ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE CHARACTERS DONT SEEM CONSISTENT W/THEIR PERSONALITY (LEX IN THE CLUB) AT TIMES, AND MORE OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO JUSTIFY WHY THE CHARACTER WOULD ACT IN SUCH A WAY. THIS COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN FIXED BY MAKING THE MOVIE APPROXIMATELY 10 TO 15 MINUTES LONGER, AND THE MOVIE WOULD HAVE THEN BEEN A CLASSIC TO ME.Read more ›
