    The opening credit sequence after the execution is one of my favorite pieces of cinema ever. The music of Joe Delia, arranging Vivaldi compositions, deepens the sadness of the urban nightmare, where prostitutes, pimps, junkies and gangstas hide in the shadows, stalking the night like ghouls; the ambiance of the battered train, distorted Hip Hop, and voices in the dark further enhance the feeling of being in a complete disaster zone; but the masterstroke: how Ferrara juggles these images and sounds with Walken's face of utter melancholy as he smokes a cigarette. A complete masterpiece; the film could end there and I would be happy. 5 years 2 months ago
