A great film; one of my absolute favorites. The whole cast is flawless, and could not be made better. The script is outstanding and I laugh through the whole movie. Highly underrated at a 72%. BTW Brad Pitt stands out in a stand-out cast as Mickey, the "one-punch machine gun"... A gypsy bare knuckle boxing champion deemed "hard as a coffin nail." Pitt should've gotten an OSCAR! Watch it with the Pikey subtitles to have any chance of understanding Pitt's hilarious lines.
De Niro is astounding as the Devil. I have not yet seen The Wrestler, but this or that is surely Rourke's best film. (OK, now I have seen it. They are both really good! Secretly, Angel Heart is still Rourke's best performance).
Enough is enough, and Douglas has had it here. Excellent study of a man falling apart at the seams. A striking film that will make an impression, and remain with you far after a single viewing. A film of great power and lasting effect. Highly recommended.
