The Brothers Rico

A late period film noir follows Eddie Rico as his world collapses. Rico was a mob accountant who now owns a growing laundry concern in Florida. The movie is bogged down by tons of talking in the first act. Richard Conte does a solid job as the lead. Eddie is used by the mob to track down his brothers. This is a meat and potatoes production - this is not the first movie that I would suggest to folks wanting to try film noir nor something I would suggest to folks that aren't wanting to see every film noir movie like myself. The DVD has a brief featurette with Martin Scorsese talking about the movie.  C
