    "You are working. That’s good now, isn’t it?"

    Let's hear it for actors! Amen.

    I want to be on a revolving turntable with Deborah Shelton.

    The most unglamorous mob film in the history of the genre.

    Underrated for all involved. Mike Newell. Paul Attanasio. Pacino and Depp had incredible chemistry together. Pacino never got enough credit for this being some of his best work. (sigh) Anne Heche

    ONLY READ FOR DETAILED GAME ANALYSIS.

    The film opens with the Harlem Saints vs. Puerto Rican Devils. All subtlety there.

    Aaron James (Kevin Hooks) has a sweet jump shot. But the Saints are bad on the defensive boards.

    He scores their last 6 points including the potential game winning shot and they’re up 57-56 with “seconds left.” Excuse me?

    He got the ball with 10 seconds left and if you count it (which I did) his shot should have come…
