What a gem this is and one that I found back when I was a teenager, just getting interested in films. I used to LOVE Al Pacino (still do - maybe not quite as much) and at one point would watch anything of his I could get my hands on. This is one that still holds up. A FANTASTIC little neo-noir, crime thriller with a fabulous cast, including Pacino, John Goodman and the always great Michael Rooker. Ellen Barkin is also great as the dame to Pacino's detective. I just love this one and it's always been one that I can enjoy anytime.

RATING: 8.5/10
