Follow the checkered career of one Louis Pasciuto, a New Jersey nobody who falls in love with sleazy junk stock dealing at age 18 and begins cleaning up by cleaning suckers out. Before you can say Rolex, he's driving slick cars and living the high life of a lowlife who has more money than he can deal with. The story arc is reminiscent of Scorsese's GOODFELLAS, with the protaganist finding himself in over his head with the Mob. It's all gripping work by actor Frank Whaley, who effortlessly downshifts to Pasciuto's Jersey whine whenever it's called for. Fast-moving, tragic, funny, highly entertaining. D.J.B.
