chad’s review published on Letterboxd:
Holy balls of fire. It was hard for me to like the film at first, since I’ve never watched a film like it. I’ve seen Goodfellas, which I consider now to be one of my favorite films ever, and this is nothing like it. Both are great in their own way, but throughout the film I can’t help comparing them and tell myself that this is inferior. But as the story progresses, I understand why the movie gets all the hype. The action-packed scenes, the superb acting of the cast, the plot development, and even the cinematography. Truly worthy of an Oscar.
p.s. you know what, i loved talia shire in rocky as adrian, she was the cutest! but my love for her reached a new level in this, she did THAT
