You can smell the cigarette smoke, dirty ashtrays and empty beer bottles while watching this. Reminds me of a lot places my parents took me to in NJ as a kid when they visited their friends (what were they thinking?). What a stacked cast: Sean/Chris Penn, Chris Walken, Crispin Glover (as a redhead...whaaat?), Kiefer, Evil Ed from Fright Night. A straight forward family crime drama that doesn’t waste time spelling everything out for you (although I still feel like it could have been closer to 90min). If you’ve ever dreamed (nightmared?) of pointing a gun at your Dad, you’ll love this! Well, maybe not, it’s pretty fucking bleak...but, a good watch.
PS - Is this an early mumblecore movie? Or am I just getting old? Had to watch with subs on cuz I had no idea what anyone was saying most of the time.
PPS - If I Live to Tell, the theme song by Madonna, slaps. Always has.
