Loved this since I first saw it as a kid
on July 30, 2017
I don't normally rate films this high, but I am a huge film buff and have watched it all from silents to the Marx Brothers, etc. This film really was thought through and, although involving gangsters, it didn't hype that up as much as it could (which was great). I first saw this film on some cable station when I was a kid. Then I fell in love with the way the production played out; the gangsters, the cars, the historic scenes; but as an adult I appreciate its philosophical musings as well.
This is a tale of a young man growing up with de facto two fathers. One is a struggling middle class bus driver, the other is convict and mafia boss, Sonny.
