Jimmy Angelelli (Harvey Keitel) wants to be a concert pianist. Jimmy's dad, Ben Angelelli (Michael V. Gazzo), wants his son to go into the family business. So far, so banal. But the "family business" depicted in Fingers is organized crime, and therein lies the film's perverse appeal. Fingers represents the directorial debut of screenwriter James Toback, who also wrote the script. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Portrait of the artist as a young thug"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"A penetrating portrait of tortured, impotent masculinity and the foolishness of attempting to be something you're not."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Wow. Cool."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Fingers works for a handful of reasons - not the least of which is a phenomenal early performance by Harvey Keitel."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVD Clinic
"Probably one of the most naked psychodramas of its decade."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"To see Fingers is to see Keitel perform as if he's doing dramatic improv. And that's absolutely fine as it is."
‑ Christopher Null,
