Dir. Robert Altman. 1996, 116 mins. 35mm. With Harry Belafonte, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Miranda Richardson, Steve Buscemi. Robert Altman’s lovingly crafted film set in his hometown is a period gangster film, filled with jazz, kidnapping, drugs, and featuring Belafonte’s favorite of his film performances. As Roger Ebert wrote, Belafonte “shows a hard-edged side not often revealed in his performances, plays Seldom Seen as a wise, canny, proud black gangster.”
