Extraordinary, over-the-top action scenes, so much gritty, vibrant, neon style, great actors, and SO MANY 80’s Times Square movie theater marquees! If ever a movie could be called To Live and Die in NY, this is it. I loved it so much!
I saw this as a cynical, shitty teenager, and hated it. Even before revisiting it, I was deeply ashamed of this fact because I knew in my heart I was wrong. I am proud of how much I have matured in the last 17 years as a viewer of cinema, and that I can now recognize Face/Off as one of the greatest films of all time.
