Review
Punctuated by debuting director John Marino's amateurish mistakes -- mostly film-school type editing tricks -- this rough-hewn, low budget indie nonetheless remains oddly compelling, with a venomous sort of street-level charm. Amid the glut of urban crime dramas, this one has an earnest integrity that overcomes genre limitations. It's easy to see what attracted nonconformist director Abel Ferrara to produce -- it shares elements of style and sentiment of Ferrara's own unpasteurized films, including Bad Lieutenant. Rising star Amy Lohman, in her first significant role, is convincingly sympathetic, an emotion the script desperately needed. If there had been some amount of redemption on the part of nominal protagonist Brian Lovero (played by co-writer Johnny Green) -- who inexplicably falls for straight-laced Amy just minutes after beating a man senseless -- it would have been easier to recommend. But as it remains, Brian's actions, and the movie at large, simply accomplish cheap thrills. And yet . . . there's something about it that's likeably hateful.

4.0 out of 5 stars an abel ferrara fan June 15 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
When I saw Abel Ferrara was presenting this film, and being a major Ferrara Fan , I had to see it. I was not dissapointed. I can see why Abel Ferrara liked it, and thought this is a film he might have made early in his career.I don't want to spoil the plot by saying what happens , watch it if you want. It is low budget but the story and acting is killer.
