Directed by Buddy Giovinazzo
Starring Rick Giovinazzo, Veronica Stork, Mitch Maglio

Writer/director/producer Buddy Giovinazzo made his indelible debut with this nihilistic saga of a Vietnam vet’s desperate pursuit to save his family from the horrors of poverty and urban squalor. Culminating in one of the most brutal climaxes ever committed to celluloid, this unforgiving masterwork remains as controversial and relevant as it was at the height of Reagan’s America.

"An angry, grueling, brutal and uncomprimising work"
