The prodigious debut feature from then-24-year-old writer-director James Gray (Two Lovers, The Immigrant) is a brooding, atmospheric crime drama set in the dead of winter in Brighton Beach, NYC, as two brothers (played by Tim Roth and Edward Furlong) from a Soviet-Jewish mafia family find their brotherly love and loyalty tested amidst a mob war. Winner of the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival (from a jury headed by David Lynch) but ultimately overshadowed by Tarantino-mania upon its release, Little Odessa is classical, irony-free, with the weight of Greek tragedy. Also starring Vanessa Redgrave, Moira Kelly and Maximillian Schell.
