The Pope of Greenwich Village ★★½ 1984 (R)

Two Italian-American cousins (Rourke and Roberts) struggle to escape the trap of poverty in New York's Greenwich Village. When a small crime goes wrong in a big way, the two must learn about deception and loyalty. Mostly character study; Page is exceptional. Inferior rerun of the “Mean Streets” idea does have its moments. 122m/C VHS, DVD . Eric Roberts, Mickey Rourke, Daryl Hannah, Geraldine Page, Tony Musante, M. Emmet Walsh, Kenneth McMillan, Burt Young, Jack Kehoe, Philip Bosco, Val Avery, Joe Grifasi, Tony DiBenedetto; D: Stuart Rosenberg; W: Vincent Patrick; C: John Bailey; M: Dave Grusin.
