  1. Strong, hard, dirty, funny, moving atmospheric and laced with scabrously musical street dialogue.
  2. 63
    Basically it's an acting exercise - a one-set rendition of that old stage and movie standby, the ex-convict struggling to go straight who's tempted to attempt one last score.
  3. 70
    May lack any transcendent point that would make it exceptional, but it is certainly a worthy start, and worth catching.
