- "Fingers: A Conversation About Independent Film" with Harvery Keitel and James Toback
Top Customer Reviews
FINGERS is one of the best movies you've more than likely never heard of. Though I found it to be initially revolting, I gave the film another chance and boy am I glad I did. Watching the film a second time revealed one of the most audacious and best films made in the 1970's. Harvey Keitel gives what to me is his best film performance. As Jimmy Angelleli (an Angel in Hell - nice symbolism!), he's an aspiring concert pianist moonlighting as a collector for his loan shark father, played wonderfully by the late Michael V. Gazzo. The predominantly New York City cast is made up primarily of great character actors from THE GODFATHER films, in particular Dominic Chianese (finally getting recognition on THE SOPRANOS) and Lenny Montana. Tony Sirico, who plays Pauly Walnuts on THE SOPRANOS, is terrific as a gangster who has a nasty scuffle in a stairwell with Keitel. Danny Aiello and Ed Marinaro are great as Sirico's henchmen, and Tanya Roberts(!) plays Sirico's girlfriend. Marian Seldes is excellent in her small role as Keitel's mother. Tom Signorelli is great as a convict sharing a cell with Keitel.Read more ›
Well worth owning. Good Bach piano too.
It stands right there with Resevoir Dogs, Bad Lieutenant, and Mean Streets-all Harvey Keitel films which have over the years gotten far more applause than they did earlier..
Actually the premise is just enough unique: the concert pianist from the wrong side of the tracks, the carefree and confused collector for his bookie father.
Toback's dialogue is very raw, but it is on target for the very raw world he describes.
Michael Gazzo gives one of his best performances ever as Keitel's father.
Not to be missed, but if you look to Toback to recreate this magic with his later efforts, `The Pick-Up Artist" or "Exposed", don't waste your time. Even his recent "Two Girls and a Guy" might have been "Two Mil Down the Drain" without the superb performance of Robert Downey Jr.

A good movie. At first Harvey Keitel seems spontaneous and violent, but we begin to realize he is under serious pressures. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer

A deliciously dark and fascinating character study. James Toback has spewn forth an iconic mob figure in the dichotomous Jimmy Fingers who tenuously tiptoes the tightrope... Read morePublished on December 27, 2013 by MTEMD
James Tovack's FINGERS is one helluva directing debut. In some aspects, it's reminiscent of TAXI DRIVER. Read morePublished on July 28, 2013 by Annie Van Auken
