An ex-con tries to go straight but also wants to get back money he's owed for the job that put him in prison. He meets a waitress who's also seen her share of trouble and they start up a tenuous relationship. Then there's a murder and things get complicated. It's noir so the plot isn't the main focus but the mood of the film is consistent and properly downbeat. The characters can't seem to shake the fate that hangs over them.

(us) wrote: A strong plot makes this tale of anti-hero Omar a surprisingly good watch. It's a gripping example of good story telling showing contrasting moral values governed by expectation and passion.
(fr) wrote: A failure considering the original source, which is one of the best manga -no, comics- ever created despite its being uneven. The film fails on many levels to capture the wonderful rhythm and flow of the manga and the innovative panels are replicated without any creativity in the transition to the filmic medium. The emphasis on dramatic events seems also less succesful here and full of cliches taken of generic shounen/seinen anime. I found the music to be quite inappropriate too.

(it) wrote: A bit like the classic documentary Hoop Dreams but with an imaginatively different setting. Just as good, and not half as long.
(mx) wrote: Funny little short that accompanied Ratatouille about getting to know and like rats as creatures, and not hate them as they've so long been by humans. It has its funny points, but it isn't my favorite, I wasn't the biggest fan of the movie this comes from...but I do love Patton Oswalt. It also features some of the first 2-D and Stop Motion animation Pixar has ever attempted.

(br) wrote: One of the first things I watched out of the Tati Criterion set, just because this one was completely new to me, and I enjoyed it well enough, but the carnival/circus atmosphere didn't quite jive with what I was expecting, so I may've come away from it a little let down.Still, it has its charming moments.Worth a look.
(kr) wrote: (72%) One of Stallone's best performances featured in this star-studdedmodern-day classic police movie. Sly gives a great subtle performanceplaying a heavily stepped on and taken for granted sheriff, and as he'salongside a great solid cast this makes what could have been a quitegeneric and forgettable movie into something that will quite honestlystand the test of time. Despite this being very much a cop movie in allactuality it has more in common with a well crafted western, withdifferent shades of grey surrounding each character, and with its plotbased on redemption and people doing the right thing when it is neededmost. A must watch for crime movie fans.

Involving with a few memorable characters , yet somewhat lacking in the prime crackling dialogue consistency that we expect from Tarantino. lengthy without becoming dull, and almost manages to be his first film without superfluous scenes until he added the sequence that showed what happened before the stagecoach arrived. Jennifer Jason Leigh is no stranger to demanding rolles, and here she is abused and bloodied throughout and still manages to unleash A tremendous all star cackle.
