“Lansky”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: June 30th, 2021 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

The baseline question for any filmmaker who wants to tell yet another story about the Mafia is this: Is there anything to say that Martin Scorcese and Francis Coppola haven’t already said, and said really really well?

Eytan Rockaway certainly thought so.

Thus he wrote and directed this sorta biopic of aging Meyer Lansky, telling is story to a writer, to be published only after his death.

Rockaway’s choice of Harvey Keitel to play the financial wizard of the mob was spot on.

Keitel excels.

As for the rest of the flick, well, listen to my podcast and find out whether it’s worth your time or not.
