I think this is a great little comng of age tale that deserves a lot more attention than it received. Although it doesn't have resolve. It's still a great movie for young adolescents or early twenty somethings to see
To be honest, I didn't pay attention throughout the entire film, but the parts I did watch were hilarious. "Sometime I do wacky things. Thats why they call me Wacky Jack." "P as in 'phenomenon'...G as in 'phlegm'..." Also, great soundtrack; how often do you hear The Cramps in the movies these days?
Funny and bizarre NYC film produced by Scorcese and DeFina suffers slightly from an uninteresting main character but flourishes with an excellent supporting cast (James, Woods, Linda Fiorentino, Burt Young, Lily Taylor). Best gun play I've seen in years.
