  • A highwater mark in 1970s crime drama, THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE doesnt dabble in stylized glamour--the film depicts Bostons dirty cops and desperate crooks as rumpled, weary, and working just to get by. Robert Mitchum stars as Eddie "Fingers" Coyle, a local gunrunner whos just run out of luck: faced with possible jail time, he must decide whether to take the rap or sell out his criminal customers in exchange for freedom. Legendary for his tough-guy performances, Mitchum endows the antihero with such simmering self-loathing and realistic mannerisms that many critics consider it one of the actors finest hours.
