Quotes

Ben London: Vic's dead... That is, you wish he were dead. And after he gets out tomorrow, you'll wish you were dead. When he went into that hospital a month ago, I thought it was your run-of-the-mill nervous breakdown. But Vic... is sick, Mick. Vic is a sick prick, Mick.

One of the Best Films of all Time
8 April 2004 | by elevenisthewaySee all my reviews

Lets set a few things straight this is a great film, and maybe more people would have seen it if it hadn't been given such a stupid US title I mean `Mad Dog Time' who wants to see a film called that. The film is a work of art and had the perfect cast with some of the greatest performances of their illustrious careers. Gabriel Burn as Brass Balls Ben London was comic excellence played along side the coolest man in the world Jeff Goldblum, I don't think its possible to say `show me' better than he does in this film. Despite my rampant praise of the film I am struggling to convey just how good this film is, it's a gem where not a single scene is wasted and every actor pitches in with a ton and please don't be fooled into thinking that this is some simple gangster film it is a goldmine of quality which I rate as one of the best films of all time 10/10
