Time Out says

Walken, Penn and Gallo are brothers in 1930s New York. When one is killed, the lives of the other two quickly unravel. This stylishly shot mobster comedy-thriller has a flashback structure of such complexity - it starts with the funeral and works backwards - that the makers themselves seem confused by it. There are some distracting plot strands (for instance, Gallo's sudden embrace of workers' rights) and a few too many nods to The Godfather, but this is still a brilliant, very visceral piece of film-making with an infectious strain of morbid humour.
