Kick-Back Friday: #79

Kick-Back Friday: #79


The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973): Robert Mitchum is Coyle, a burnt-out arms dealer in Boston who tries to play snitch in exchange for a lighter upcoming sentence. But his friends (with finger quotes in full effect) may or may not be better at the ratting game. With Peter Boyle, Alex Rocco (Moe Greene in The Godfather), Richard Jordan, and Steven Keats. Directed by Peter Yates (Bullitt, Breaking Away).

Merely by example, old-schooler Mitchum could teach a thing or two about naturalistic acting to any method whippersnapper.
