In one of the best performances of his legendary career, Robert Mitchum plays small-time gunrunner Eddie Fingers Coyle in an adaptation by Peter Yates of George V. Higginss acclaimed novel The Friends of Eddie Coyle. World-weary and living hand to mouth, Coyle works on the sidelines of the seedy Boston underworld just to make ends meet. But when he finds himself facing a second stretch of hard time, hes forced to weigh loyalty to his criminal colleagues against snitching to stay free. Directed with asharp eye for its gritty locales and an open heart for its less-than-heroic characters, this is one of the true treasures of 1970s Hollywood filmmakinga suspenseful crime drama in stark, unforgiving daylight.
