There have been a number of "dope" films that have followed "Born To Win". None have been as searing, honest, funny, and profound as this one. The acting is superb, the writing brilliant, the direction first-rate. This is cinema at its best, powerful filmmaking. George Segals performance is as good as it gets. See it!
This little film from the early seventies stars major film star Robert De Niro in a role I'm sure even he can't remember doing along with George Segal who plays JJ a sucsessful hairdresser who's hooked on heroin and runs afoul of the mob. So JJ is up to his neck in trouble when the cops use him to get the goods on a drug smuggler. Absorbing at times, very well acted by Segal in this somewhat twisted comedy/drama. Best scene is when JJ & his friend are shooting up in a washroom in an abandon office floor. JJ'S friend overdoses on what he thinks is heroin but instead it's battery acid laced inside the drug meant for JJ. A powerful scene displaying Segal at his best moment in the film. A bittersweet film more regarded and appreciated today than when it was first relased over twenty years ago.
