Prizzi's Honor (1985)



Reviews and Comments

Prizzi's Honor is a mafia tale, something like The Godfather, but with a wickedly subtle sense of humor just beneath the surface. The pacing of the movie seems leisurely enough on the surface, but the dark plot twists and fierce irony suggest a wild mania. This is a smart comedy that should please those whose cynicism can match its.
