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.

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.

Great Movie! reminded me of Training Day. Realistic depictions of todays world, real life.Alison Lohman was believable as the young girl, and Jonathan Avildsen as "Cole", gives an eye opening performance.Johnny Green convincingly portrayed the conflict between the two worlds he lived in. I recommended it to several freinds.
