Couple of comments: this movie is directed by Raymond De Felitta, the New York indie movie director who also brought us the excellent "City Island" some 4-5 years ago. De Felitta does an excellent job recreating what New York was like in the early 90s (not a pretty picture). Second, props also to screenwriter Jonathan Fernandez, whose script is paced nicely, with some sprinkles of much-needed humor, and turning mostly bitter-sweet toward the latter stages of the movie. Third, beside the mob story, the movie also makes some pointed comments about family struggles (Tommy being estranged from his mom and younger brother). Fourth, there are a number of great acting performances, none more so than Nina Arianda (best known for winning a Tony a few years back for the Broadway play "Venus In Fur") in the role of Rosie. Interestingly, she plays Rosie as a blonde (we later learn what the real-life Rosie looks like).Read more ›
Then again, back in the day- when this takes place, the papers probably had news on mafia activity so often, it probably didn't stand out much.
Or at least not until the Feds started working hard to bring the families that comprised the mafia, down.
I plan to research this Bonnie and Clyde couple ( as dubbed by the press) online, to see how close to reality the movie is, because it all seems pretty darn realistic, but also pretty unbelievable if only because of the sheer audacity and madness of this twosome.
It is these two young lovers who ROB THE MOB and don't feel bad about it. Or overly worried.
What is familiar, are the mob names thrown around in conversation as well as the mafia characters in the movie- so many of these depicted or mentioned, really existed.
This was actually an interesting story and if the movie had a flaw, it was that you didn't get to know the Bonnie and Clyde couple as much as you wanted to.
All you really know, is they are young, totally in love, and devoted to one another- along with being incredibly crazy( and naive) to mess with the mob.
Stay for the end and start of credits, because you see the photo of the actual young Bonnie and Clyde couple.
Over all, I sat pretty amazed at the total chutzpah this couple had, to rob from the mob.
The gravity of what they are doing, never seems to register with either of them.
And perhaps, that is exactly why they dared to do it.
This is the period in time, when things started to go south( luck wise) for Teflon John Gotti.
All the actors did their roles justice.Read more ›
