target in reconfirming the American Mob stereotype that most movie
goers already have by conjuring a tale of men born and raised in the
Italian section of Brooklyn, New York. There is one exception: the
story takes place in the 1990's, in an era dominated by computers and
technology, wherin many have a whole range of life and work options
at their disposal that wasn't the case at the turn of 20th century.
Some fans of the Godfather series will rent this DVD, perhaps
criminologists will be keen on it, and others curious of the
lifestyle and sociological aspects of running a book business of bets
and gambling too.
This work is clearly ultra-violent, and doesn't shy away from showing
the ugly reality behind various life situations, underworld
individuals controlling a given territory in a city, protection and
gambling rackets, etc. As such, it's an underworld 101 course for the
younger viewers, including frequent cussing over the entire work.
Most lacking, is the almost complete absence of great music, or any
music for that matter. Questionable, is the rabid microcosm focusing
on Italian pals who grew up together and open a risky gambling joint
Another aspect it the total absence of law enforcement in the
narrative, as if none existed in the world, except for a warning to
be careful when talking over the phone, comparing it to a stick of
dynamite from phone taps.Read more ›
