    Elaine May pulls no punches here. She allows Falk and Cassavetes to wallow in their character's most toxic tendencies and yet you still see their humanity.

    a black comedy w/o jokes, and like a Cassavettes movie w/o excess, every action goes the real way not the movie way; it hurts

    Not a typical mob movie, they are more of a side story. The real story is basically shot like a case study of two friends. It was a good movie and it was nice to see Peter Falk in a different type role, since this was the Columbo era. It shows a friend pushing his other to the breaking point through deceit and selfishness. It had very good acting and you could believe the bond between Falk and Casavetes. The end has a nice build up with a sudden but warranted end.
