"You only get one shot at revenge
"Mickey Rourke stars as Butch 'Bullet' Stein, a Jewish junkie from the mean streets of Brooklyn who is paroled after eight years in prison...
Definitely a classic although rejected by many as being too dark and morose.
This, in my opinion, is one of Rourke's greatest roles. It's infinitely
sad that Americans prefer movies which tend to resemble fairy tales
instead of those which reflect real life's hardships. Bullet, superbly
directed and acted out with a profundity which we rarely witness in
movies of this genre, had been treated with utter injustice for it was
released directly to video. It features the day-to-day reality which
does not conform to society and its laws as well as the teachings of
theologians or those professed by pedagogues in high schools and
universities. I had lived in BKLN for nine years before moving to
London. There is nothing more sad than wasted youth and drug-induced
frustration. Bullet demonstrates that only too well. Those of you who
love Bullet might enjoy watching Menace to Society, New Jersey Drive
and 187. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or comments.
