"Staten Island" caps and clip

Click photo to open slideshow


Director: James DeMonaco
Cast: Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Seymour Cassel, Julianne Nicholson
Rated: R
Released in US: 12.22.09
Run Time: 96 minutes
Extras: deleted scenes and commentaries by D'Onofrio, DeMonaco and Hawke

....The most impressive aspect of this production, co-produced by none other than Luc Besson, is the three main performances. D'Onofrio is excellent as Parmie, a quirky mobster whose relationship with his mother is simultaneously touching and creepy. He not only looks the party, sporting big 'George Romero style' glasses that contrast with his fancy suits, but he acts it as well. When he climbs a tree, you're not really surprised. Ethan Hawke isn't quite as good here as D'Onofrio is but only by a slight margin. He's completely convincing in the role of the dim witted but somewhat well meaning septic tank cleaner, and you can absolutely believe he loves his wife and wants the best for their baby - even if he's a completely bonehead. The real scene stealer, however, is Seymour Cassel who says more here with facial expressions and body language and without uttering a single word than anyone else in the cast.
