Hoezo in KINO

“I shoulda known better than to trust a cop. My own goddamn mother coulda told me that.” This contemplative but stone cold thriller lives up to its sarcastic title. Coyle (a schlubby put perfectly cast Robert Mitchum) is a convicted felon awaiting a lengthy stretch upstate for repeat offences and in a desperate final attempt to evade prison he offers the cops to snitch on his old crew. No glamour and fast women to be found here. This is a starkly realistic look at what a career in crime does to one’s life and loyalty. English language without subtitles.

Storyline

Aging Boston gunrunner Eddie Coyle (Robert Mitchum) is looking at several years of jail time for a hold-up if he doesn’t funnel information to Dave Foley (Richard Jordan), an ATF agent. Eddie buys some guns from another gunrunner, Jackie Brown (Steven Keats), then gives him up to Foley, but the agent isn’t satisfied. Conflicted, Eddie decides to also give up the gang of bank robbers he’s been supplying, only to find that Foley already knows about them, and the mob believes Eddie snitched.
