The kitchen, where they tell the baby sitter to go home, is not at all consistent with the supposed "mansion", they live in. Several other interior scenes appear to be shot in a different location, home or perhaps, set. See more »

Much better than the standard gangster flick implied by the title
I've been amazed at some of the slams this movie has taken. No story? Boring? Slow? You've got to be kidding. This was a fascinating character study of an "honorable man" trying to retain his honor in a corrupt business and political environment. From the title, I was expecting more of a traditional Martin Scorcese gangster flick, so I was surprised (pleasantly) that "violence" of the film was primarily about two codes of life clashing against one another. I can certainly understand a viewer attracted to the film because of the word "violence" ibeing disappointed at seeing so little on the screen. But I found the film riveting: excellent plotting, great writing and superb performances.
