A strong, beautifully shot film about the drug business.
14 February 2002 | by gasgiantSee all my reviews

I thought this was a very interesting film about a young successful drug dealer who sees the destruction of drug sales and wants out, and how difficult that proves to be. Snipes is excellent, and Abe Vigoda (Fish from Barney Miller) is terrific as the ageing Mafioso who both likes him and demands unflinching loyalty.
