Here he plays a schmoe who misses out on investment jackpots by backing out of his stake in an electric car company (clearly the company is meant to be Tesla and the boss Elon Musk), and in embarrassment flies Silicon Valley for a quiet life on Martha's Vineyard. Predictably enjoyable hi jinks arise when the same boss 10 years later moves in.

Timothy S (au) wrote: It tries very hard to be as edgy and important as Mean Streets and Taxi Driver, but misses the mark on both counts. Still, what a performance from the always reliable Harvey Keitel. This was his first leading role after Mean Streets, and he showed that he could turn in an intense, nuanced, chilling performance very early on. It is fascinating to watch Jimmy Fingers deal with the extremes of his life: being both a very talented, if skittish, classical pianist, while also being a head-busting debt collector for his loan shark father. It looks like James Toback saw Godfather II and said, "Get me those guys." Dominic Chianese (Johnny Ola in GFII) shows up as an audition scout, Danny "Michael Corleone says hello!" Aiello is a thug, and Michael V. Gazzo (Frankie Pentangeli in GFII) plays the loan shark father. It's nice to see them, but it's also kind of distracting, given how many of them are there. Lenny "Luca Brasi" Montana from the first Godfather even shows up as a pizza shop owner who is roughed up by Fingers at one point. But I digress. It's worth a watch, but there are times when I'm not sure the film knows what it wants to say. It meanders into subplots that aren't as meaningful as they ought to be, and it dwells upon Fingers's duality to the point of becoming tiresome and redundant. Still, it's a very lean 90 minute film and has enough to make it worth seeing once, if you're into this kind of thing.

Swedish director Bo Arne Vibenius creates what many consider to be the perfect Exploitation film, parading images of sex, drugs, and violence in a cavalcade of perversion. Adult film star Christina Lindberg plays Frigga, who is pushed over the edge by a group of disgusting men who use and abuse her in the most unimaginable ways possible. When first he finds that she is being "uncooperative" with the clientele, the sadistic Tony cuts out her eye as a means of persuasion. Unbeknownst to him, however, Frigga has been saving her meager earnings to hone her driving skills, weapons proficiency, and martial arts training as she prepares for an all-out assault against her aggressors. Lindberg is as beautiful as she is deadly as Frigga, a role that single-handedly transformed her from a sexy starlet in to an action icon as she dons her trenchcoat and eye-patch before heading out for revenge with a sawed-off shotgun. The raw and gritty action sequences recall Sam Peckinpah's STRAW DOGS from just two years prior, while the hardcore sex scenes are as shocking as they are graphic. One can't help but rejoice as Frigga rips in to each of her enemies after having every last shred of her humanity stripped away. An undisputed classic in Exploitation cinema.-Carl ManesI Like Horror Movies
