This Movie Blew My Mind!!!!!


Seriously, this is probably the greatest 'gangster' film I've ever seen - better than Bonnie And Clyde, better than King Of New York, better than Scarface. For me, this is "the one". I actually found this DVD at BigLots! over a year ago for $3, and it sat untouched in my collection 'til just a few nights ago. I had no idea what I was in store for.

I could go on and on about the acting, the script, the beautiful set design, the intense violence, etc., but in the end, The Grissom Gang is yet another bizarre '70s masterpiece that all fans of "strange" cinema must see. Obscure gems like this one are what make digging through DVD bargain bins worth all the trouble! What a movie. I can't recommend it enough!

Yep.

It's *still* at Big Lots for $3! Bought it today and watched first time.

I actually *had* heard of this film, and almost caught it at a 3/$1 downtown heater in my youth.
Been on my list since. Falls just short of a masterpiece, but much better than I could have ever hoped for.
