4.0 out of 5 stars Cosmo's the man!, 18 Aug 2003
This review is from: The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The Killing of a Chinese Bookie is a great film. John Cassavetes has directed a masterpiece. I throughly enjoyed this film as it explores the L.A. underworld and all it's shady dealings a world which a lot of people are unaware of. Ben Gazzara is Cosmo Vitelli a strip club owner who incurs debts to the Mob and who is given the unenviable task of killing a rival Chinese gangster - a bookie so that he can pay his debt.It's an interesting film as you see how the underworld in LA operates and also as Cosmo runs a strip club it focuses on his relationship with those who work for him and the underworld society around him.In his line of business sex defintely sells! All I can say is this Ben Gazzara is probably the sexiest nightclub owner I've seen on screen.For anyone who wants to see a Cassavetes film, you have to see this one!
