In spite of some over long editing this new video is not going to put you to sleep, there is something for everyone. It contains a \\; { sympathetic Hell's Kitchen priest, a drunken lawyer, sadistic guards and a brilliant young District Attorney. These characters are part of a modem day regaling of the Count of Monte Cristo, or so the I director would have you believe. [ The story is about how a youthful high jinks goes [ out of control and the four pal prank perpetrators are sen to a boys home where they are tortured, beaten and ] sexually assaulted by billy clubbing, bullying, guards. [ Years later, as adults, they get their revenge. l Kevin Bacon is the slimiest scum slug of the guards. He does it so well you almost hate to see him get his just salting in the end. Robert DeNiro plays the priest. It's the first role, for a while for DeNiro in which he can't use the "F" =word. That's what happens when costuming puts the collar on you. DeNiro turns in a fine performance, but hil character has to go through a struggle as to whether he should lie in court to protect two of the boys. The directo chose not to show this. It was a mistake and would have added more dimension to the character. Dustin Hoffman's drunken barrister was done in Hoffman's usual fine style, but it was a throw away role. With Hoffman's talent the character should have been expanded. Brad Pitt and Jason Patric play two of the four boy: as adults. Both actors are certainly believable in their roles, but the characters were more exciting to watch when they were boys. This highly intense film might have left the viewer sleepless in Pahrump if there had been more put into the supporting characters. GrumDv's __[)Eo = -- 9.30am- 10pm T, TRT 1500 E.
