  • “BANG!” isn’t shy about looking at the dark side. Berns was in a business with brutally sharp elbows, and he learned quickly to give as good as he got. show more

  • The story itself is arresting, and if that’s all “Bang” offered, that would be enough. But “Bang” does more. show more

  • Blending stock footage, vintage audio, re-creation, and many testimonials from heavy hitters from Ben E. King to Van Morrison, Berns' son Brett keeps things visually lively, and not as morose as may be implied. show more
