Trick Baby

The most underrated movie of 1972.

And while I wouldn’t have gotten much out of seeing it back then, when I was just a year old, by the time it finally hit my DVD player, I was better prepared.

What you get is a gnarly blast of street-wise grifters committing dirty deeds dirt cheap.

Starring the late, great Kiel Martin of Hill Street Blues fame, it pimp-slaps you for 89 sizzlin’ minutes, right down to its bleak finale.

My first try at getting it was ruined by a broken disc bearing a visible footprint.

My second try? Well worth the wait.
