Interesting views of the insights of a variety of people..
I stumbled upon this film today on cable and was immediately drawn in by Tony Sirico's segments. He was about 45 when this was filmed and his hair looked nothing like the Wing Man; Paulie Walnuts, but rather it was slicked back ala Goodfellahs and his voice was so COMPLETELY different from Paulie I was amazed! So I was captivated right away.
He goes on to describe his thoughts on his mistakes, prison time etc, and what I liked was how candid and honest Sirico was with the interviewer. You could see he thought seriously about every question and answered all of them (even the tough ones) with a disarming demeanor that suggested deep regret (imo).
Like when the guy asks: "Would you kill someone for a million dollars?" and Sirico (instead of blurting out a quick "no") considers the question, almost looked as if he was gonna tell the guy, "sure, you kidding?" but instead kinda half smiles and finally says, "Nah..no...I don't need the money--so no I wouldn't do that." (laughs) Great stuff!
It was really well lit and the close-ups made Tony Sirico look young and very engaging. I don't wanna bring the guy a "Whitman's Sampler" or nothing, but the man did look cool, and he was a good sport about the whole affair as were many of the interviews. It was great to see where all those "Paulisms" come from. It just reinforces my great admiration for Sirico's style of acting--love to watch this guy do his thinghe's a hoot!
Check it out, you'll probably like it a lot. It's a hidden gem if you like documentaries.
