State of Grace (1990)

State of Grace (1990, USA) C-134m. ** D: Phil Joanou. Starring Sean Penn, Gary Oldman, Ed Harris, Robin Wright (Penn), John Turturro, John C. Reilly, Joe Viterelli, Burgess Meredith, James Russo. After a ten-year absence, Penn returns to his home turf of Hell's Kitchen, N.Y.C., and joins forces with Oldman and his brother Harris, who are the leaders of a powerful gang. Strong characterizations in unfocused script that does not justify film's overlength. Some stylish bits, but should have been a much better film. Score by Ennio Morricone. Photographed by Jordan Cronenweth (BLADE RUNNER).
