Synopsis:
Based on the acclaimed novel by George V. Higgins, "The Friends of Eddie Coyle" follows an aging gunrunner's troubles at the peripheries of the local mob once he finds his options split disastrously between the threat of a fresh prison sentence or police cooperation. One of the best, most unexpected gangster films of the 1970s, 'The Friends of Eddie Coyle' is a gripping tale of low-lives and loyalties, presented with the director's trademark authenticity and naturalism, and an extraordinary array of performances, led by a never-better Mitchum.

American gem - The Friends of Eddie Coyle review by dl

Spoiler Alert
02/12/2016

Another great low key American crime drama featuring Robert Mitchum as the too old for this sh*t low level gangster whose desperately trying to get his upcoming sentence quashed, your soon thrown into a world of bank robbers, gun runners and double dealings a plenty, but this is not your usual run of the mill gangster shoot em up saga this one thankfully is more restrained by giving its downbeat world a set of believable characters to work with and ones that come equipped with smart engaging dialogue thats played out so realistically given the situation and predicaments that unfold along the way.The only downside for me was it was over to soon i could have easily spent a bit more time in this 70’s dog eat dog crime world.8/10
