A real surprise discovery. High quality story & acting!
I just watched 'Nitti-The Enforcer' on DVD. I had to then look it up on IMDb. I can't believe it's 21 years old! What a brilliant, engrossing film and an amazing, real, nuanced performance by Anthony LaPaglia. This guy is an amazing actor and seeing as he's still only 51, I think he will break through on a bigger scale soon. I certainly hope so. His Nitti is real, not like the caricature style Nittis in 'The Untouchables' (still a great film) and in the recent 'Public Enemies'. The period and placed is evoked perfectly. I just wish the film had been a bit longer than the 90 odd minutes. I will look out for his other stuff with Anthony LaPaglia in also now, brilliant actor.
