This film really surprised me as I have never heard of it before yet it has quite a strong cast inc Bruce Wllis amongst others and is very good. Some how find it hard to picture Hoffman as a violent gangster but the acting in this is very good as is the story. In a way it is similar to Goodfellas as it charts a boys life as he joins and works for the local gangster in 1930's New York. Also featuring Nicole Kidman in her most "revealing" role (that's saying something!) and I wonder how such a good film is not better know? If you like gangster films, any of the good actors in this or a fan of Nicole Kidman you should definitely watch this!

Format: DVD
Based on IMDb, I'm evidently one of the few people, critics or public, who likes this movie. It's got some flaws, but on balance I think it tells an intriguing story, has a great look and features some first class performances. It also, admitedly, comes to a slow walk in the last third of the movie and only barely recovers.

Billy Bathgate (Loren Dean) is a young kid, not quite a punk, who is ambitious and wants to make money. The easiest way is to become a gangster, and he figures out a way to be noticed by Dutch Schultz (Dustin Hoffman). The movie is told from Billy's perspective, but it's dominated by Schultz's cunning, violence and loss of power. Dutch Schultz controls the numbers racket, liquor and gambling. He has judges in his pocket with bribes. He has never had anything pinned on him, but now he's facing a tax evasion rap. He moves upstate to find a friendly jury. Although he beats the rap, the prosecutors won't stop coming at him. And more and more of his fellow sharks are circling closer as they realize that one way or another Schultz is becoming history. When he loses the confidence of Lucky Lucciano, his career comes to a violent halt. Billy survives, barely.

Hoffman, in my view, gives a fine performance of a cunning, uneducated, suspicious and violent gangster. Schultz's way of dealing with a problem is to eliminate it as directly as possible. He's unpredictable; he may pat your face one minute and put a bullet through your open mouth the next. Steven Hill as Otto Berman, Schultz' long time operations manager and money man, gives an outstanding performance. Berman is getting a little old and tired, but he remains loyal to Schultz. Make no mistake; he's just as much a crook as Schultz. He develops a liking for Billy that saves Billy's life.

This is one of my tapes that I was keen to get a DVD copy of. Although this is about Dutch Schultz I enjoy most of Hoffmans films.
