King of New York

King of New York ★★★★½

Hell is just a frame of mind.

- Marlowe, Dr. Faustus


What does it say about me that in this rage-vomit of a film, Christopher Walken - an albino scarecrow, twitchy, so full of marching powder that the veins at his temples press outward like his own blood wants to escape, fucking his moll at midnight on the Q train, doomed before he was even born - is the hottest he has ever been?


Sentimentally steamed with my
Instrumelody, and heated
Especially for your team
And a .45, indeed, will beam
In between the scenes. Destroy your dreams
You willing to die? we'll see

- Bizzy Bone, Notorious Thugs
