Christopher Walken is absolutely riveting as the menacing head of a criminal family in this gritty mid-‘80s neo-noir gem. Two teenage brothers (Sean and Chris Penn) idolize their absentee father and his apparently care-free lifestyle as a career thief. When he agrees to help them plan their own heists, however, it soon becomes clear just how dangerous he really is. Brattle debut!
Ivy: “I can’t recommend this film enough! So much smoking, MGD, and vintage cars. It is an enjoyable rustbelt noir with great performances across the board. Keep an eye out for Crispin Glover. He is a joy in a small part, but with huge sideburns.”
