Not impressed at all. Buscemi is clearly miscast. He's at his best when he keeps his mouth closed and just looks nuts--like he did in Con Air. His thin, weaselly, nasally voice carries no threat whatsoever. When he says to Jimmy, "I could have you killed," it's a laugher. He just doesn't have the menacing gravitas of, say, a DeNiro. It's as though he's a comic character. The scene where he's "playing cowboy" and his valet interrupts him is an example. His pounding on the door to get in the bathroom his woman has locked is a metaphor for his puny attempt to appear to be a powerful power broker. His skinny, pasty white body getting out of bed with the other woman is also laughable. Also, the "whack scenes" were reminiscent of Godfather when all the hits are going down as Buscemi shaves and primps.
