This movie—for half of CamLin’s money (Rickys) is the best pairing of these two actors. You could say Walken/De Niro in Deer Hunter or Penn/Pacino in Carlito’s Way (oddly, Sean Penn doesn’t have too many great pairings) but, this is the one. And, if you haven’t seen At Close Range, it’s just perfect. Totally perfect for what it is-a 1980’s genre film.
Completely agree. Chris is absolutely amazing and terrifying in this movie (and a young Sean Penn is fantastic). If you haven’t seen it, I can’t recommend it enough. Fantastic clip here.
