Low-budget gangster picture.

Uses the great recurring American movie theme of immigrants arriving in the big American cities to both good and bad advantage.
| Original Score: 2/4

The titular precipitation in Lana's Rain is a manifestation of the badness in the world -- but here, badness is pure Lifetime Channel.

Unfortunately, writer/director /editor Michael S. Ojeda, making his feature debut, veers too often into risible bombast.

It has all the passion, frenzy and violence of an Abel Ferrara film -- but without the vision, depth, style or control.
| Original Score: 1/5

Cliche-riddled, poorly acted and ultimately delirious.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

Clumsily under-written and feverishly overacted, it's as embarrassing to watch as it is perplexing.

Even as I noted a glitch here and there in the plot, I was aware that the movie itself, and especially the character of Lana, had enlisted my sympathy.

The movie hinges on Orlenko, a Ukrainian model-actress making her American feature debut, and she delivers a sterling performance.
