  • The truth is, Mr. Farina would be considered Oscar material if "Joe May" were a bigger film. As it is, he'll have to settle for being great. show more

  • The film, written and directed by Joe Maggio, only has this handful of characters and looks at them carefully. The dialogue is right, the conflicts are simple and sincere, the hopes are touching. show more

  • Dennis Farina gets the enviable opportunity to humanize the kind of character he has sometimes exaggerated comically in glossier films. show more
