1996 Certificate: 18


When 1930s New York racketeer Johnny Tempio (Vincent Gallo) is shot down at a movie house, his family joins his fiancee, Helen (Gretchen Mol), to mourn at the coffin. Meanwhile, the hood's two brothers - Ray (Christopher Walken) and Chez (Chris Penn) embark on a search for the killer. A rival hood, Gaspare (Benicio Del Toro), is the prime suspect... but would that be too obvious? Director Abel Ferrara's tale of choking blood ties packs a mean punch with Penn standout as the sibling scarred by a savage upbringing.
