The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973)

Small time gangsters playing like big shots.  Shows the grimy, unattractive side of the crime underworld rather than the glorified world so often portrayed.  It is subtle in its storytelling going for a more realistic feel than stylized.   A little known Robert Mitchum film that deserves more attention.   8 out of 10
