This is a movie which I have watched over and over and over. Although Sharon Stone did a wonderful remake, which I found to be wasteful, this is the movie I recall to others.
Little Phil, absolutely marvelous in this movie. I wonder where he ended up in life. If you have never in your life, ever, watched a movie about a tough woman in the mob, you need to watch this one. Gena Rowlands, of course, is so wonderful and captivating that one wants to watch over, more than once. It lends to the harsh part of life and comes out with you sitting on the edge of your seat, not knowing where these two will end. I really cannot tell you enough. Obviously, I do not know where to touch; this movie was written for Gena, oh so boldly.
