Tin Men ★★½ 1987 (R)

Set in Baltimore in the 1960s, this bitter comedy be gins with two aluminum-siding salesmen colliding in a minor car accident. They play increasingly savage pranks on each other until one seduces the wife of the other, ruining his marriage. Like “Diner,” the movie is full of Levinson's idiosyncratic lo cal Baltimore color. 112m/C VHS, DVD . Richard Dreyfuss, Danny DeVito, Barbara Hershey, John Mahoney, Jackie Gayle, Stan Brock, Seymour Cassel, Bruno Kirby, J.T. Walsh, Michael Tucker; D: Barry Levinson; W: Barry Levinson; C: Peter Sova; M: David Steele.
