One eyed king
Yet another violent and ugly Irish mob movie set in Hells' Kitchen. Lots of plot with friends killing each other, weddings, and bar scenes. Movie has an odd look and I think it was made in Canada? Some of it is well done, has a good cast but the voiceover gets tedious and most of it has been done in other and better movies. The late, great Bruno Kirby appears and Assante plays the psycho leader who kills off his friends.
Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
