The Last Days of Frankie the Fly (1997)
Frankie "The Fly" (Dennis Hopper) is an awkward, introverted middle-aged, bottom-rung gangster. Though outwardly mild-mannered, Frankie secretly entertains dreams of getting violent revenge upon those who constantly humiliate him. He frequently watches films and idolizes Marlon Brando's performance in On the Waterfront. His boss Sal (Michael Madsen) and Sal's number one thug Vic (screenwriter Dayton Callie) are high on Frankie's imaginary hit list.
