This is a terrible movie. I like Keitel but this was bad. Don't even rent it.

Well, I got quite a different opinion about this flick. It was down to earth flick, pervert, real, funny and with a superb cast. If you like gutty and grind sort of movies this is your flick. No need to say that it is directed by one of the masterminds of the "urban" style Abel Ferrara.
Aside from this keep in mind that the film came out right after the Reservoir Dogs-so no comments here. And last but not least- H.K is an actor that always plays tough personas, so with other words it is a non=standard movie.
I myself bought the DVD for 3.95 shipped to me from BUY.com and though I heard a lot of stuff about the quality of the DVD- it is overall a pretty good (well, it is not a THX format but definitely gets the job done).
I hope all this info helps you a bit.

I wasn't too impressed with the transfer, but this is one of my favorite films. Great, great performance from Keitel.

Rent it first. It has some good aspects to it but also seems like a half-finished project to me. The story really didn't come around the way I had hoped and there are about 15 minutes of drug use that just get old after awhile.
