This film burns like a heater being smoked in a Jean-Pierre Melville flick. A toughness and intensity permeates every shot in one of the best films of the 80s… too bad it falls off the radar so often when discussions like that pop up. This film has a slick style and intensity that permeates every scene. This is Mann channeling the best of Melville; using the city as a dangerous concrete jungle populated by characters that are anything but black and white. This is a world where the bad are good, the good are bad, and nobody sleeps with a clear conscience. Remarkable.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
