Movie Reviews

A biting and seedy look at NY street and drug life ....
Rudolf Spoerer | Weston, FL United States | 01/20/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In this movie we follow two very different brothers raised by an alcoholic street walking mother ... One brother manages to overcome the adversity of his upbringing always striving for a long term goal, while the older brother takes a more hedonistic look at life and doesn't really plan further than tomorrows thrill ..... This certainly is one of the hands down best depictions of how drugs really ruin your life and your loves ... it certainly must be noted that this 1977 is NOWHERE close to the violent drug movies of today where we are treated to super close up shots of users inserting heroin needles ...."
Bit typical story but still the best!
Timothy WJ Lim | Seoul KOREA / Syd AUST | 12/07/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I believe the plot of A BROTHER"S KISS, sort of typical
Hong Kong gangster movies very 80's brotherhood, drugs and violence..with very tragic tales however the director
Seth Zvi brought heart warming moments with great actors' performance...worth to see it anytime!"
Excellent acting and cast
frankie villarreal | mountain view, ca United States | 10/05/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"the cast is great and so is the storyline.Cathy Moriarity does an excellent job,John Leguizamo is great,Marisa Tomei is masterful, and Rosie Perez is simply the best. The story of two brothers going seperate ways in life into a dramatic conclusion that is simply an original heatfelt film."
Realistic, sad and gritty
Robert W. Smith | SF, CA | 11/30/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was an incredibly moving and hard hitting film. The realistic and raw dialogue kept me transfixed as the relationships of this family are explored without the easy use of cliche's."
