James Stewart stars as a railroad man hired to secretly carry a payroll despite his suspected connections to outlaws
Sean Penn, Gary Oldman, Ed Harris and John Turturro star in Phil Joanou's 1990 drama about Irish-American gangsters in New York
Terry Noonan (Penn) is the prodigal son returning to the old neighbourhood to rekindle his friendship with Jackie (Oldman), a crazy killer who's raddled his brains on drugs and drink.
Jackie's older brother Frankie (Harris) is the local gang boss, and he takes Terry out on his raids as he torches buildings and generally 'protects' the local community, gradually revealing the secret that lies at the film's heart.
While Penn is the star of the movie, he's constantly having to battle with Oldman's scene-stealing performance, which throws the elegiac balance of the film out of whack. Unfortunately, this was released at the same time as GoodFellas, and at the time didn't fare well in the comparisons, which is a pity because it's a very fine film.
A powerful, gritty, life-of-crime thriller that showcases its charismatic cast to impressive effect.
