DIRECTOR: ABEL FERRARA

CAST: CHRISTOPHER WALKEN, DAVID CARUSO, LAURENCE FISHBURNE

“Come see me at the Plaza Hotel” is the indelible invitation extended by ice-cold ‘hood Machiavelli and crime kingpin Frank White (Christopher Walken) in the gangster classic that provided Notorious B.I.G. his backup alias. Abel Ferrara’s pulp blowout combines hungry hip-hop street spirit with sumptuous Old Master visuals, making optimal usage of Wesley Snipes, Laurence Fishburne, David Caruso, Schooly D’s “Am I Black Enough For You?”, and the Queensboro Bridge.
