Tough-as-nails ex-mob moll Gloria lives alone with her cat, her gun and an endless supply of cigarettes, until she’s forced to go on the lam with a child in tow. Rowlands’ energy and broad Bronx accent prove infectiously entertaining as she reluctantly drags her unlikely ward across New York in a blaze of gunfire. All of Cassavetes’ signature character work and emotion are present in this explosive slice of genre filmmaking.
