"FINGERS was in large part an uncompromising examination of lurid machismo and Keitel's performance hinted at the dark places he would go in films as extreme as BAD LIEUTENANT."
Harvey Keitel is forced to work as a debt collector for his mobster father even though he dreams of becoming a concert pianist. When he is drawn to a prostitute, the tension between his two worlds becomes unbearable. A disturbing and memorable debut from director and screenwriter James Toback.
