Movie Info

Mac (John Turturro) has always wanted to start his own construction business. But it's only after he and his two brothers, Vico (Michael Badalucco) and Bruno (Carl Capotorto), quit working for a bad boss (Olek Krupa) that he plunges in. The memory of his hardworking, recently deceased dad (Joe Paparone) also resonates strongly with Mac. He wants to build houses, but he wants to do it the right way, just like his pop. His ideals, though, threaten to destroy his relationship with his brothers.

Audience Reviews for Mac

    A blue-collar New Yorker forms a construction business with his brothers. John Turturro is a gifted actor, and in this film he shows himself a capable director. There are some flashy moments of meaningless close-ups, but most of his shots are framed well, and the actors all deliver strong performances. The story highlights the plights of the working class, and though my political sympathies rest with Turturro's, the film's plot becomes a muddle of cliches, and it's easy to figure where the film is heading before it gets there. Overall, Mac is not a horrible film, and working class people can identify with its characters, but ultimately the story isn't very strong.

    I have an affection for this film, but there are still parts that bother me. The entire cast does a great job. Michael Baladucco gives an amazing performance and John Turturro is fantastic. The only character I hated and thought was completely useless was Ellen Barkin's character and even though I saw the idea behind it, I really could of done without her being in the movie. There are some genius scenes that I connected with on a lot of levels. The ideals behind the movie are ones that I thought were very interesting and there were some things I wish I could have seen more of. You can tell that Turturro took some great ideas from some directors that he had worked with, the only problem being that he has Spike Lee's taste for letting certain things play out too long. Again, really well acted and shot well, but the tacked on ending really kills me (although I liked the dialogue).

    A nice little indie film.

    The kind of movie one would expect directed by an actor. Great performances by the whole cast in a touching, dramatic story.
